ThePublicSchoolNYC Listing: Artists and Workers of Color Initiative / Reading, Research, and Production   4 points and a circle (2012-ongoing) It is usually the grandeur of the wooded area surrounding The Manse that we recall from our history books.

One: A search for a different economy (2012)   The Occupy Wall Street Journal (2011-2013) vizKult needs help archiving user submitted covers made for The Occupy Wall Street Journal during the occupation of Zuccotti Park in 2011 and in various Occupy Town Square Pop-ups in 2012. The project was originally started from within the NYC General Assembly Arts & Culture working group which has since disbanded, leaving vizKult to pick up the work and archive the project. Reach out if you have experience, skills, or advice. The plan is to archive the covers and build a mini-website for display.

These structures are constantly shifting -they have no end, no single author: anyone can add to them or subtract from them, they can be neutralized or destabilized. PROPOSITIONS combine the paraliterary with the paravisual in that responses can be linguistic or visual, conceptual or reflexive. One thing is for sure, it’s more interesting to traverse these structures than to harvest the semantic fruits which they might bear. after image (2009) no dogs were harmed (2010) a line nature (2010-2011) the natural light (2011) discrete power (2011) commonalities (2012)
