More > onwards for this traditional text for Chanukah that used to be read in Italian, Yemenite and other synagogues.

In this cooperative storytelling game, you take the role of monsters from the silver screen or the humans that fight them. One player takes the role of Master of Ceremonies (MC), playing both... More > referee, narrator, and roleplayer of last resort for antagonists and minor characters in the story. After Sundown is a world like our own, but the genre of horror has an element of dark truth. There really are monsters in the night and nightmare worlds bleed into the realm of man. Yet it is a modern world, with modern sensibilities. Mythical history and mythology are seen through a modern interpretation, adopting tropes of horror that resonate with modern audiences. Many are timeless – the crimson flash of claws in the dark – but many other elements are merely puzzling, and will be downplayed. People today do not fear miscegenation or communist invasion, and those elements of old horror will be excluded.< Less

2019 Annual Meeting Proceedings By ACSA Press
Paperback: $40.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
In his final essay, written while on life-support and published posthumously, Reyner Banham, attempted to draw a distinction between architecture and other modes of design. Banham’s essay... More > likened the discipline of architecture to a black box – a device known only through its inputs and outputs, but never through its content. The elusive and absolute quality of architecture that Banham wanted to articulate resided, for him, in the how rather than the what, in the performance of architecture rather than its meaning. For Banham, the trope of the black box alludes to an absolute quality of architecture, a disciplinary core, but one senses in the unfolding of his argument. In the nearly thirty years since the essay’s publication, we find ourselves in a post digital world in which architecture has continued to broaden its arsenal of techniques and operate across an increasingly expanded field.< Less

This book documents, contextualizes, and ultimately re-envisions Project 52 for 2010: an intermedia Performance / Video artwork. The project, completed in 2011 and initially existent on the web in... More > the form of 52 video / performance works--one realized each week of 2010--has been expanded, exhibited, and, from time-to-time, re-performed live, at numerous art venues. The work as a whole is eclectic, by its nature diaristic and intimate, yet grappling with travel, dislocation, and global events. All of the pieces individually mark time, reflecting thoughts and feelings of the moment, which this book attempts to concretize. Some pieces stand as conflations of emotional connection to place with dutiful art production, others are whimsical flights into formal tropes; all range from momentarily unconscious to fully cognizant, all have backstories. These are the collected backstories with pulled still images, and new found visions; a collaboration between artist, Jim Jeffers and designer, Danelle Michaud.< Less
