I letterpress printed a broadside for the Queer Communities in Print portfolio exchange at the upcoming2014 SGC International Conferencein San Francisco. A limited number are available for purchase atBig Cartel, and you can view the prints made by all the exchange participants at an exhibit starting March 20 atAdobe Books Backroom Gallery. 'Socialites' is a short story that revolves around an anachronistic trip to the Vatican by the publicly rich. The piece captures their humanoid sort of disconnect, their simultaneous ignorance and omnipotence, and the naive way in which they're debauched. There is an aesthetic tension between Xerox and fine press (partly because of a bad lockup after a long night at the press!), and between a Futurist/Constructivist geometry and the medieval feel of colors like brown, red, black, and white. Collaged strips of found paper invoke light: sun-bleached cardstock, the gray haze of the photocopier bed, and rows of embossed circles like dressing-room vanity lights. 'Socialites' will also be featured in my short story collection forthcoming fromBrooklyn Arts Press.
