CONTRIBUTED CREATIVE WRITING TO PERIODICALS, JOURNALS, AND QUARTERLIES (print)
“Cut-up Cat-Up Catch-Up,” Shifter, No. 16 (2011): 165-167. [Pluripotential issue, edited by Sreshta Rit Premnath along with guest editor Warren Neidich.]
Wrote the “Southland Flaneur” column for Artillery art magazine, based in Los Angeles. Each essay began with an art exhibition or event that would become the impetus for considering larger issues in the world. Its lyrical and freewheeling style is a precedent for the longer form one that I use for my current postings on KCET-TV Artbound (see above for their titles).
“The Civil War: Re-Enacting at the Beach,” Artillery (September-October 2008): 46.
“A Happening: Trading Dirt, or Walking with a Dirty Mind,” Artillery (July-August 2008): 44-45. [Re: Alan Kaprow]
“Possession: Real Estate Development with Gordon Matta-Clark,” Artillery (January 2008): 49.
“Ribbing the Creation Museum,” Artillery (March-April 2009): 16.
“Visiting with China’s Ancient Terra Cotta Warriors, or Combat-Ready for Paradise,” Artillery (November-December 2008): 16.
