Undoing Property? Edited by Laurel Ptak and Marysia Lewandoska. Sternberg.
A five color screen print of various shades of blue. The image is two digital photographs of sunsets made in California layered on top of each other. One photographed by my mother. One photographed by myself. Photographed five years apart, but from the same location. A collapse of time in a picture. Two suns on top of each other. The first blue is ultramarine, etymologically meaning “beyond the sea.” Looking beyond the sea.

Edition of 100. By Automatic Books in Venice, Italy. Hard bound. Italian and English.
This is a two volume book that came out at an exhibition at SF Camerawork. The work for this was basically produced on the same road trip Public Access was done. It’s a book of texts and photocopies of photographs. Zach Houston, friend and poet, wrote the poems on his typewriter in San Francisco. This is called Volume North and Volume South. One contains photographs from Southern California, the other form Northern California. Publication Studio sells this. Download Volume South PDF. Download Volume North PDF.
This was the original publication for Public Access featuring a text by Ed Steck. Go to an earlier post on this blog to find the newest print version of the project and the project’s explanation. This was designed by Eric Nylund. You can download it here. Publication Studio in Portland sells a print version of this.
This was a publication printed in conjunction with Carry-On. This is different from the PDF below. This was commissioned by the gallery (the PDF below was more a way for me to bind a notes and thoughts together). This includes a text written by Helga Just Christoffersen, scanned install instructions by Bas Jan Ader, and various images. See online version here. Buy here for 5 Euros.
A PDF made for Carry-On, an exhibition I organized at Galerie West in Den Haag. Download PDF. It features texts and images of the artists in the show, and a text I wrote. This was meant to not be a catalog, but to be more like a digital artist book publication for an exhibition.
This publication was made for the Let Us Keep Our Own Noon exhibition. It exists in print and as a PDF. In print it is 60 sheets of paper (like minutes in an hour), and bound like a calendar. It consists of a year or so of visual and textual research into a cultural history of time. Download PDF.
While at the Shandaken residency in Upstate New York I relaxed for the summer and tried to teach myself how to paint the sky. I offered anyone who mailed me a SASE (self addressed stamped envelope), I would paint the sky on the back of the sealed empty envelope and mail it back to them. The top image I found on Flickr.
This poster was made for an exhibition I curated at Galerie West in Den Haag. The poster was designed by Mylinh Nguyen. The sentence is a slogan from time standardization resistance in the United States. The back shows a lady in San Francisco standing in front of a public sundial. The poster is available here.
This was similar to my open edition download + print works. Except this was specifically intended to be exhibited. The catch was that it can only be exhibited without my permission. If someone wants to exhibit this, they are free to do so, they just cannot inform me beforehand. You don’t even have to inform me after either. You just have to hang it in a show and attribute it with my name. The piece is a scan of a violation I received while making a photograph of Pyramid Lake. I did not have permission to be on the Federal land. Hence without permission… For work detail info the date is 2012. The title is Pyramid Lake, Nevada.
I have an old piece where for $1 I think about people for one minute. I send two emails. One when I start thinking, and one when I stop. This is an open edition.
