The Photographer’s Playbook came out, published by Aperture. It is a very enjoyable and well executed collection of photography assignments, ideas, projects and anecdotes from a huge variety of artists, edited by Jason Fulford and Gregory Halpern. I contributed a conceptual piece cloaked as an assignment. It is titled ‘The Death of the Photographer’.
I just received the Artist’s Book Yearbook 2014-2015 (they are quite ahead of their time). It’s a fantastic resource plus it contains interesting content besides the listings. I’ve contributed an artist page focusing on The Invisible Book. Below is more info about the yearbook.

Eight of my poems appeared in Poëziekrant, 1/2013. Acht Nederlandstalige gedichten verschenen in Poëziekrant, nr. 1, 2013.
In the project ‘Uitgeschreven ruimte’ commissioned by BKKC in Tilburg, The Netherlands, artist Geert-Jan van Oostende and I realized an 11 meters long work on cloth. The project was an experiment in having poets and artists work together on creating a new work for the public space. It was funded by the Mondrian Fund and the Dutch foundation for literature. There is an exhibition of all the works created until January 27, and this specific work will remain on view permanently. Here is a view of sketch design and final work in situ. We were asked to make a work for the windows at the BKKC building and decided to stress a sense of surface without depth in both text and image. The text is my poem ‘De zee is groen’ composed around visual information from a Suske en Wiske comic book, the image is a shape created from the surface of Van Oostende’s working table.
Local Colour: Ghosts, variations (published December 2012) is a collaboration between In Edit Mode Press and Canadian poet Derek Beaulieu. Points of departure are Paul Auster’s novella Ghosts and, in particular, Derek Beaulieu’s reworking of Auster’s text, Local Colour. It can be ordered here.
