BODIES (2009)

BODIES (2009) was a limited-run, 6" x 9", 311 page book created in collaboration with Justin Gorman and Publication Studio for the Amsterdam Biennial in October, 2009.  The book, along with seventeen others made by twenty-two Portland artists, were included in the collection on display in Amsterdam. Gorman and I are both artists who investigate language through text-based installation and written documents, respectively.  

BODIES is a collection of text culled from horror film packaging; a selection of descriptive language that explores the film genre's tendency to incorporate the ultra-violent with the genuinely absurd.  The book, diversified experiments in type design, is sectioned into horror sub-genres, accompanied by a consistent colophon, cataloging film title, director, year of release, and typeface used.
