A palimpsest of two unrelated texts, through brings together a four-line quotation from Brecht’s 1926 poem “Of Poor B.B.” (articulated letter-by-letter over 183 pages) and a sequence of images generated by keywords lifted from a dream journal and plugged into Google’s image search. It can be found here: http://amzn.com/0615828817

Dispersion enacts the “sprinkling” that is Brecht’s metaphor for egalitarian distribution in the nine-line poem “Of Sprinkling in the Garden” as a dispersal of the text of the poem itself. It can be found here: http://amzn.com/1468004506

Civil War is a re-articulation of Bertolt Brecht’s 1943 poem, “The Active Discontented,” in which each of the 22 lines of the poem is incorporated into a montage of images drawn from conflicting spheres of capitalist spectacle. Find it at this link: http://amzn.com/1320083358
