Books & Zines
For reasons I'm sure I'll constantly be trying to comprehend, unpacking a suitcase is sometimes the most melancholy task for me. Home has been an intangible in my life for so long, something to think about and mull over whenever above the air or in a vehicle on some random road. And just as the most seemingly profound thoughts can come to one when staring out the window of a moving vehicle, so too can the most depressing come from unpacking a suitcase in a city you're stuck in. This isn't meant to be some downer or diatribe, but rather whatever honest words that I can somehow put down here about living in Los Angeles. It, more than any other city I've been in, is unknowable and ungraspable while somehow simultaneously remaining contradictory in that it affords a huge freedom and ability to continuously discover something new. It is very much a city to dream in, reminding me of a run-down carnival where most of the rides are broken, but the ones that are still working make being there worth it. The zines below represent the culmination of several projects up until now. From the 1000 Miles Project, one of the largest performance projects in the history of Los Angeles, to smaller and more humble projects like the monthly MOIS series, each zine and book below is printed and bound in-house at the SSK Studio by hand before it is securely shipped off to you, ensuring that the object looks and feels the same in your hands as it did in mine.
