Part catalog, part poem, part reflective analysis. A fourteen page Risograph zine, printed in Sea Foam and Bright Red, which re-contextualizes fragments of prints made during a weeklong residency period at InCahoots, Petaluma, CA. This zine pairs fragments of images in a reduced color palette with narrative text, lists, self-questioning and observations, the collective of which seeks to complement the Everyday, Annotated prints.
Always, the suggestion is to make a list.
The list is supposed to reveal options (or at the very least provide some positive marks on a page to which one can respond).
What’s on this list?
Sensations of light
The obfuscation of condensation on a skylight
Soft paper pressing against brittle wood
The dry air, both cold and warm
A collection of stained ceramic mugs
The road underfoot
Signs about water
Signs about fire
Pins finding holes in wooden walls
Scraps of paper
A cosmology of spiderwebs
Books left unread
A trashcan of empty cans
In the morning, I dress to run.
The fog just starting to break.
Several miles pass, the labor never easy.
Feet and breath unfamiliar with these hills.
At the breakfast table, toast and egg.
Coffee black and the bent spine of a book.
Pictures aren’t puzzles
Images and thoughts from a week-long residency at InCahoots, Petaluma, CA, August 2022.
