No Future

This graphic essay will run in the next issue of World War 3 illustrated but here’s a look at it now. It’s part of a series of work I’m doing around the intersection of art and mortality (lots of laughs to come!!) The lyrics are all gleaned from punk rock I listened to at roughly time referenced in the comic. So how could resist not doing a youtube playlist and sources page?

Memento Mori and the Princeton Atelier

I recently found out that in 2016 I will be co-teaching at the Princeton Atelier. It is a “unique academic program that brings together professional artists from different disciplines to create new work in the context of a semester-long course.” In my case I will be collaborating with Jennine Willett, Co-Artistic Director of Third Rail Projects, a multi-disciplinary company known for site-specific and immersive dance theater works. The class is tentatively called the Dance of Death and will seek to create an artwork in the tradition of Memento Mori. I will most likely have a dedicated site to the work but in the meantime, here is a “graphic essay” that will be part of a larger body of work on the subject of art and mortality.
