For my class entitled, "Superexuberance"...we went out to the Eureka Dune in Death Valley. I spent the evening in a tent, changed a tire, witnessed friends get out of a hell of a car crash, and completely tumbled down a very steep crater in a blazer like a total douchebag.

A Tentative Ontology: Abridged
B/W laser print with color-printed cover
5.3 x 8.5in
20 page (maybe?)
Edition of 50 (probably?)
The Image above is a sketch for the cover of a portion of my thesis project. The publication that this cover will adorn will house my only completely original contribution to my final publication, a 15+ page essay about Christianity and Graphic design and how both have figured into my life. The project as you may have noticed has changed its name from "The Tentative Ontology" to "A Tentative Ontology". I decided that this made far more sense considering this project has become considerably more about perspective on the material, as opposed the broad comparative literature project I thought I was going to embark on...thankfully.
Curiously enough, Karina, my long abandoned typeface seemed to be a perfect fit for this "abridged" edition, as it is itself, unfinished. Get it? Tentative Ontology?

Here are some images of a project I am working on for my Visual Language class. Its a small box containing 'art prints', single-use cardboard usb drives, and a fold out poster (See Below) that also serves as the cd booklet. The project is basically about how digitally acquired music sacrifices a whole experience that is a physical, tangible object. The music contained is a curated collection of contemporary ambient, instrumental electronic music.
Bill Pullman will explain/show more soon.
Musics: Between the Buried and Me-"The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogs", The Velvet Underground-"VU", R.Kelly-"Love Letter", Deathspell Omega-"Paracletus", The National-"Exile Vilify"

As those of us at OTIS know, Senior show is approaching quickly. Nigel and I are hard at work plugging in and laying out all of the imagery and text for our publication which is shaping up to be one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had at OTIS.
It just came to my attention today, that there will be 1000 copies printed. That is 1000 108 pages of 2 Color (PMS 3135 and Black) reproductions of the advertising, graphic design, and illustrators work for the Comm Arts class of 2011. It will all be perfect bound and ready for your perusal on March 13th from 6-9pm. Exciting.
Musicing: Phoenix "It's never been like that", Celeste-"Nihiliste(s)", The Velvet Underground-"VU", R. Kelly-"Love Letter", Fleet Foxes-"Hopelessness Blues", and James Blake-"S/T"
