I am in the process of rebuilding my website. After many years with Indexhibit I'm experimenting with my own thing. Vaska actually published an update to the Indexhibit platform recently so the websites now look great on mobile too. The process of re-archiving old projects is always a little strange, especially as recent work all takes a little longer. It's also pleasantly surprising to visit old pieces and find they still work.
Anyway, a few new things are on their way:
Dead Hand Play Book
I still collaborate with Nathan Bissette as Dead Hand. We published a couple of bits last year to our bandcamp
. We've been working on putting a book together of sheet music and are very nearly finished. It features lots of music, text and illustrations and also an essay about the band. We're just finishing up a couple of bits before it hits the press. The book also features really exciting dance notation by long time Dead Hand co-member Josh Brook-Lawson.
Another collaboration with Nathan. For a long time we've spoken about building some kind of game as means of exploring interactivity and music. After several iterations we're on our way through the development of a piece of IF written using the Inform7 language. It's a really fun platform.

Yep, I'm working on another novel type thing. It's an exciting process. If you ever read the last thing
I did and had any constructive criticism I'd love to hear it. I'll share more information on this when it's a little further down the line. I am seeking help, advice, readers though!
In case you missed it, I published the Dungeon Mountain
book recently. I've loved learning more about the world of board games. The website BoardGameGeek
is a fantastic place to start. The regular cardboard column on Ars Technica also.
I recently finished reading Palimpsest by Matthew Battles
and recommend it.
celebrated 5 years of activity this month. The current exhibition by Victor Timofeev is there until 28th May.
is an arts organisation in Nice. If you're passing through be sure to visit. Raychel Carrion Jaime's Fallas de origen (2007) was my favourite moment.
I'll be back in London in a few months and would love to work on things with folks there. Get in touch.
