I'm so excited for the upcoming release party and signing event for my newest artist book, Thinking Of You, an exhibition catalogue for my solo show of the same name, now on view at the Bookdummypress Gallery in The Mana Contemporary Museum.
I should be honest though, the book isn't really a book, but rather a card deck with an image on one side and a strip of text on the other. Designed to evoke the feeling of shuffling through old memories, it's devoted as much to play as it is to my person, with each bit of text being part of a personal memory, designed to be read in any order and still be understood, accompanied by over fifty images that complement each line of text evenly. The best part being that there's no wrong way to go through it; a few friends came over and tested it out and came up with a bunch of rad ways to read it, either through a random shuffling, a carefully considered organization, or laying the cards out and matching them like that old children’s game memory!
In addition to all that fun stuff, I'm going to be creating a NEW limited zine that complements the Thinking Of You artist book! Available only at the Bookdummypress Gallery as an exclusive for visitors to my show, the last time I made a limited gallery publication it ended up selling out within hours and was up on eBay selling for over $110! But don't worry, this zine won't be expensive- it'll be FREE!
Also, if you missed the chance to make it to the show's opening, I'll be there giving a guided artist tour of all the work @ 3pm :)
Basically: lots of fun & lots of hugs- hope to see you there!
