river of wool

river of wool is a quickie analog to digital experiment that grapples the concept of analog to digital outputs; for example; river of wool is entirely laid out in a digital program, but printed inherently analong by printing through a xerox machine. Hand assembled, edition of twenty. Imagery in this zine is new and recycled, and functions as a experiment in digital output methods.

soft light  is a sixteen page handbound zine that began the series of observing the analog.

This continuous series is a study of the ancestral linage that exists in my work and life experiences through the physical interactions my conscious self  that carries out in the process and transgression between digital and analog histories and ephemera. Time and sociopolitical advancements in technology encourages us to ignore the tangible and embrace the digital. What do we lose when we destroy the physicality of our surroundings? What is lost in the conversation of digital and visa versa? How do our ancestral histories hold space as the analog loses value? Who can archive this?

so many thanks to the SF railway museum & Alison Cant for letting me scan the archive! (at least half of the fast passes in this book have never been publicly released)

This photozine is a xerox printed pamphlet that is a homage to the 100 square foot SRO (single room occupancy) apartment that I have been inhabiting in San Francisco's Chinatown for the past year. The building is rapidly gentrifying and this zine is a tribute to the trash and street ephemera that inspires me as a native san franciscan and artist.
