“And I asked if destruction was// only found in the caesura of their voices, harpooning from the/ science of street corner pulpits where my eyes only looked to/ trample their help.”

-Dimitri Reyes, “The Watchtower”

The Watchtower | Poetry

“I imagined myself covered in the feathers / of the city, pigeon and cardinal, not afraid of the night, / nor the bullet of the day.”

Finding Lost Things | Book Review

“Characters visibly struggle to find themselves in these stories, whether that self is a woman with a dead child, or a woman whose relationship has broken down, or a woman who decides she wants no children, no marriage, no partner at all.”

Entropy #054 | Visual Art

Entropy #054: This image is a multiple exposure of a derelict hospital and a wave. Like all my works in the series Paintings for a Robot, this piece was created by putting thousands of digital images into a video editing program. The images were then randomly merged together. Painters famously spend enormous amounts of time working on sketches, cartoons, etc. before putting brush to canvas. And then they spend endless weeks, months, or years, finishing their vision. Technology will change all this. Just like brushes improved image making in the first civilizations BC, computers and robotic devices will replace the insane manual labor involved in creating the paintings that are part of the canon. If robots can do surgery they can surely make a painting.

Three Sisters | Photography

“Three silos stand watch over the farmland in northern Montana, a trio of robust sisters huddled together in private discussion. A string of birds enter the circle from above, eavesdropping on the sisters’ conversation, collecting gossip to spread to the residents of the neighboring fields.”

“In the mid 1950s there was little sensitivity to indigenous people or the possibility of disrespecting native traditions via caricature. Most of our costumes were handmade. My mother substituted lipstick for war paint. The legend on the our candy bags plays off the real nature of the collision of Native and European cultures. Found text and anatomical elements hint at that violence.”
