WORLD PROBLEM SOLUTION BOOK
a visual diary that covers a period of 2 years. any re—solution is illusive. the re—remembered events have been re—interpreted and re—vised countless times, as the book chases truth and simplicity in a deep pile of re—fuse. for a while, the book was whatever the book needed to be, and it helped a lot.
Giddy murder, Fassbinder lookalike contests and amber lights twinkling in the far distance all dance together as Michael Crowe attempts to exhaust one location in the world's most popular video game.

REAL STATE (SPRAYED)
A visual essay with text by Eleanor Ivory Weber looking at the relationship between housing, capital and image-production. Semi-fictional aphorisms play out in a landscape of piledrivers, cement and skyrocketing homes as an attempt to grasp the intensifying and terrifying tendency of image-building. These newbuilds present themselves as aspiring icons or landmarks steadily floor by floor cladding the city in its marketed self-image.

SLEEP TORPOR (TEASER)
An interpretation of an exhibition and a new work in itself, Drunk Complexions takes its title from an entirely liquid construction assembled in a metal baking tray. The floating spray paint diffused on the water surface is reflected by the diffused silver ink on the page surface. In this printed layer an additional synthetic substance intermingles with those that the images depict. A deletion fluid applied, by Scott, with a variety of materials directly onto lithographic printing plates produces an iridescent metallic film that pools and swarms across the pages, submerging the images.
