Non-Refereed Publications

This section includes publications that do not follow traditional formats as well as artist created publications.

Exhibition catalogues: The exhibition catalogues that are listed below I have designed and edited are not reproductions of the exhibitions. They are extensions of the exhibitions with additional edited articles and art pieces. They are designed to extend the critical dialogue beyond the limited time that an exhibition is seen.
Artist books: Artist Books are multiple original art ideas using the book format. Artist Books are not reproductions or collections of art works. Artist Books are original art pieces that use the printing process experimentally.
