Each piece contains codes for multidimensional realization, which is consciousness expansion.
Commercial publishers have either encouraged the re-packaging of the work into more traditional forms and/or omitting image accompaniments. This would render these experimental works incomplete so I release them here as downloadable PDFs.
THE FUTURE IS COMING
prophetic poems, 2019
Welcome to the future has been here. Transcribed during a 5-month, daily commute between Brooklyn and Grand Central Station. A retrospective text display of the collective panic, manifested months later during the pandemic.
BUSHWICK LINES IN SHADES
a polyvocalic collage of a neighborhood, 2018
Bushwick Lines is centered around gentrification, specifically the instability of life for transplants and ‘locals’ facing a tumultuous economy, incoherent or incompatible social values and the role technology and identity politics play in interpersonal relationships. I see neighborhoods as verbs; Bushwick Unconscious is my attempt to embody the ever-shifting nature of place. This required looking at things sideways and developing a similarly skewed language; squinting as if the subject matter would disappear (or become subject to generalization) from targeting it head-on. The kaleidoscopic structure of the work, which began as images drawn from notes taken on walks, was the best way I could begin capturing Bushwick’s nuance.
journal, poems + images 2019
In 2015, I started having back pain and experiencing strange psychic phenomenon–both of which I recognize now as the genesis of my spiritual awakening. I was instructed via dreams to go to Ecuador to work with a Shaman. My healing process has involved re-visiting these images and extracting new meaning from them, as much of the visual and written language is coded and layered symbolically.
I'M AS CRAZY AS YOU MADE ME AND THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE

HEAD CAP UNDER SPACE DRONE
poems, images + interactive map, 2017
The table of contents is also a prologue, or living map transformed by the limits of design in relation to your journey through this book. Mapping out these limitations through images, section breaks and italicized headings on the left of each page is my attempt at providing you with more possibilities in reading–a frame that zooms in and out on an embodied whole.
