These contributors explored a wide range of topics, including the shape and physical form of the egg, the anatomy of the chicken egg, the egg as depicted in art works and music, the egg in religious and folkloric origin myths, and the use of egg as an aphrodisiac. As always, it was a delight to work with these wonderful submissions and brilliant contributors.

topo cards

Here are some new cards I’m pretty proud of. They’re made from old topo(graphy) maps, which I got for free at an estate sale recently and are backed with some stiff-ish oaktag. With the amount of “upcycling” I do these days, I’m a borderline hipster.

FIGMENT: The Art of Subtraction

I’m flattered that FIGMENT—a free, inclusive, participatory arts event that is held in multiple cities and which drawing tens of thousands of participants each year—has published an article about my project contribution in Oakland in Fall 2015. Here’s a few other favorite photos from “The Art of Subtraction.” I had a great interview with Adelia Gregory, wrote the piece.

ki-ni-kə-ˈnik zine vol. IV now available

It can be safely viewed here. The formatting is preserved best by a download of the pdf rather than online viewing.

There has been a long delay since the release of the physical paper format of this volume (in October, 2015) and its electronic release today in May, 2017. I’ve been abroad and away from my trusty scanner, but now I’m back at it. This volume on the topic “figuratively speaking” features the poetic, fiction, and non-fiction works of Johanna Bronk, Aurora Feeney-Kleinfeldt, Susan Letcher, Alexander Marcus, Cody Ross Rex, Alyssa Stearns, and Rachel Colwell with highlights of pre-published drawings, prose, and paintings by Edward Gorey, Norton Juster & David Small, and Pieter Breghel. These contributors explored a wide range of topics, including metaphors, proverbs, word play, mad libbing, and other intriguing aspects of language and the linguistic arts. As always, it was a delight to work with these wonderful submissions and brilliant contributors.

the body parts a pile of pieces

 

the-body-parts-a-pile-of-pieces

the body parts a pile of pieces
amount a mountain ever distant
cleaving from itself behind,
the crunch of egg against the wall,
ear regular splinters along the spine,
the like-same crude-hewed absence

tied together to the foot of the tomb,
the dead healer,
I tried to name the places between the heart and the knee
but lost myself in the density of it,
the city was vague and rag-tagged red
bent to your bones into the night

shaking out the death threats,
keeping my finger on it,
breadcrumbs for the cats.

Occlu-cat-id

Thanks to S.J. Wang (click here for his twitter) for the brilliant art-object-from-occlupanid and to Mari for sharing it with me. If anyone can translate the title, I’m so curious!
