More > chapter in history. Collected and republished, these letters are mainly taken from a publication named The Pioneer, where many of Dame Shirley's humorous and interesting correspondences were published. Many detail the bars, hotels, stores and other establishments springing up in the vicinity of the mining operations, as formerly quiet and unsettled country districts became hives of activity in the space of mere months. Shirley details the culture springing up around the valleys and hills of California, as thousands of new miners and prospectors arrive with their families, all hoping to strike it rich. Many hailed not simply from the United States, but elsewhere too: suddenly, the California of the 1850s was home to a multicultural and exotic atmosphere, which Dame Shirley's observations bring out.< Less

“After Brad Troemel” (ABT) is an artist book conceived for the JstChillin exhibition “Read/Write” at 319 Scholes in Brooklyn in 2011. The book – originally published in... More > a limited edition of 20 – took as its conceptual core the characterization of artist Brad Troemel as a genius and a mastermind analyzed through the lens of conspiracy theory and amateur internet sleuthing. According to artist and writer Artie Vierkant, who wrote the introduction to this edition, ABT is not “about Brad Troemel, nor any of the myriad names or identities that are mentioned in its pages. ABT is about the construction of identity in a mediated public space - largely concerned with social interactions on the Internet, but most prominently through textual and visual communication.” Chris Coy (www.seecoy.com) is an artist and filmmaker currently living and working in Las Vegas. He has shown work at the New Museum in New York, the Sundance Film Festival and numerous international art festivals and exhibitions.< Less

In the light of recent child abuse scandals in the UK, it seems pertinent that this book should receive a higher profile. As a victim of child sexual abuse the author went on to become an offender,... More > though he expressly accepts full responsibility for his own actions. This led to him making several attempts to end his life but then he discovered a merciful forgiving God. Society in general has no stomach for rehabilitating sex offenders. Unlike the burglar, who may steal through lack of funds, the root desires behind a Paedophile's offences will never change. It is as much a part of their persona as the colour of their eyes. Included is a chapter on how to advise your children to stay safe; the reality is, it’s not always a case of ‘Stranger Danger’ but it is always one of a ‘Space invader’. If it takes a thief to catch a thief, perhaps the public will accept that it takes a thoroughly repentant sex offender to best explain why Paedophiles commit such abhorrent acts and how to prevent them.< Less

There is a need to rework the codes of science museums to confront the past and future possibilities of human evolution. The manner in which the history of evolution is presented leads museum... More > visitors to interpret human evolution as progress toward perfection. I seek to fold back into museum spaces this problematic meeting of evolution and perfection. Scientific exhibitions need to foster the vital educational experiences of theoretical debate, the discussion of controversies, and the admission that science is malleable—morphing and changing with time. Research, technology and values will forever be entangled with our new abilities to genetically modify our own bodies. Forum environments within museums will allow the public to straddle the border between an array of political, ethical and scientific paradigms and to recognize that there are greater, richer truths within and beyond simple factual data. These truths are complex and dynamic, nearly infinite in number, and often incommensurable.< Less

More > themes within Calderon’s “life is a dream’. Why connect? 'distance' is a tricky thing. We often find ourselves 'alone together' even in the biggest megalopolis sprawl. We have all the distance we want. We often feel it difficult to connect to our lovers and spouses...friends....even if and when we are 'in them' or 'into them'. It is a book that looks at the ways we have changed in our expression and storytelling because of the new means of communication: mobile, pervasive, obsessive, limiting, thanatic, libidinous, tribalizing, swarming, informative, dis-informative, prosthetic, novel, primitive. This book is a series of essays, observations, and project proposals that graft simplified meaning onto the ways we inhabit public space, privatized propaganda, and expression in spectacle and performance.< Less
