Tape Cartride
28 pages
Black on Crimson Cover w/ Rounded Corners / Full Color Interior Pages
5.5" x 8.5"
Edition of 50

In 1981 Oldsmobile gave a complimentary tape cartridge with every vehicle featuring Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt, Kenny Rogers, Bob Seger and more. Often found in thrift stores this tape is almost worthless. "Tape Cartridge" as a zine takes a design element of the complimentary cassette and plays with it generating new compositions from the tape.

=====================

"The Best Of"
24 Pages / Black and White Xerox
5.5" x 8.5"
Edition of 50
2015

"The Best Of continues my series of zines using cassette tape j-cards to generate abstractions using the information sheet from the mid-1980s cassette "The Best of The Band", compiling the root-rock group's greatest hits onto one cassette. The Best Of as a zine showcases the spaces in the design, the hard edge abstract black and white forms as a meditation on negative space."

=====================

"Epic Stereo Cassette"
24 pages
Full Color Cover / B&W Interior Pages
5.5" x 8.5"
Edition of 50

In a continuation from my past zines such as "17" and "Tusk" I took the j-card from the album "You Can Tune A Piano...But You Can't Tuna Fish" by REO Speedwagon and composed with the logo of the Epic Records Company to make a formal study.

=====================

"17"
24 pages
Full Color Cover / B&W Interior Pages
5.5" x 8.5"
Edition of 50

Uses the j-card from Chicago's cassette "17" to focus on the warning to keep the cassette out of the sun. Manipulated in the xerox machine to bend and form patterns and text.

=====================

"Slipsheet"
24 pages
B&W on Blue paper cover w/ Color and B&W Interior Pages
5.5" x 8.5"
Edition of 50

Uses varying sizes of slipsheets enlarged across the gutters of pages in an abstract study.

=====================

"Noise Reduction"
24 pages
B&W on Pink paper cover w/ B&W Interior Pages
5.5" x 8.5"
Edition of 50

Uses the Dolby Noise Reduction logo from the back of an Alabama "Greatest Hits" cassette to make an abstract form, part totem and obsolescent technological guide.

=====================

"Tusk"
20 Pages
Full Color Cover and Interior Pages
5.5" x 8.5"
Edition of 50

Uses Fleetwood Mac's "Tusk" cassette to focus on the distinct pink bars associated with that era of Warner Brother's cassettes. Including the awkward phrasing around how a cassette can be a "Double Play Equal to Two Albums" and have "Blank Tape" to replicate the sequence of an LP.

Essay by Drew Daniel for Terence Hannum's exhibition "Decay" at GUEST SPOT (Baltimore, MD)

“Like the barren mountains of e-waste or the ship-breaking yards of Chittagong, Hannum’s studio is a place where commodities go to die. But in an alchemical act of “nigredo” in which there is a generatione ex putrefactio, the waste matter of the now-dead commodity becomes re-born as art. In a familiar allegory of the move from the baroque to modernity, the smooth clarity of abstraction is achieved through the redaction of content, the reduction of information, and the foregrounding of the material surface.”
