I have been publishing in various media and capacities for as long as I have been writing. Over the past few years, I have been drawn to the possibilities of e-publishing and you can download eBooks I have authored or edited through the links below.
Workshop Outputs/Book Sprints:
These eBooks are the result of workshop settings or “book sprints”, intense pressure cooker environments for producing new texts.
From the Periphery — an interactive publication created using Twine. The publication examines ideas of centers and peripheries, suggesting approaches to re-invigorate the so-called edges. The publication was created at Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute, Funchal, Portugal over the course of 3 days in October 2017. View it online.
Responsible Technological Innovation — collection of haiku created over the course of a 2 day workshop with the Risk Science Center at the University of Michigan, June 2014. Co-developed with Andrew Maynard. PDF | EPUB
New Aesthetic, New Anxieties — product of a book sprint I organized and hosted, facilitated by Adam Hyde. Several authors worked over 4 days on the question of what the “new aesthetic” is. Featuring Rachel O’Reilly, Michel van Dartel, David M. Berry, Michael Dieter, and others: PDF | EPUB |
No Limit — exhibition e-catalogue for a show I curated of new work by UBERMORGEN at the Kasseler Kunstverein, September 2015. PDF
Under the aegis of my position as Curator at V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media (2011-2015) I created the organization’s first electronic publications and created the Blowup Readers to complement my series of events and exhibitions entitled Blowup. With this group of eBooks I introduced a strategy of mixing old and new content, actively seeking texts to re-publish or resurrect from archives, as well as commissioning new pieces and writing and conducting interviews myself.
