Probably Already Underway is the first in a series of three chapbooks of psychadelic journalism and microfiction set against street photography and screencaps of social media content. Probably Already Underway examines the mitigating language used in reporting on events of climate catastrophe and the political and ontological consequences of unaesthetic disaster through the central example of a Colorado suburb burning down on new years day 2022.

Flung From the Volcano, which will be printed in mid-October looks through todays eyes into work, automation, alienation, power and control. Algorithmically delivered content, highway speeds, roadside attractions are exposed in salacious photographs to be sharing an umbrella. Mythic rain, a falling snake and the esoteric flesh witness the dalliance, a time rupture effects material promises.

Blooms [forthcoming] centers around the image of a pumpkin plant, grown through seed and accident in a pile of moss outside of my shared rental house over the summer of 2020. The plant's prodigal flowering remained only that, and was a backdrop to an inner allegory of queerness. It’s about generation - the generation of toxins, biological generation and social conceptions around gender/roles, and look at the toxic bloom of colonialism queerly, to see it as a bloom that does not need to fruit if I don't reproduce it. Including the context of the summer of 2022, mainly uprisings against police brutality toward black and bipoc people and the pandemic.
