Publication workshop with the AUTOBIOGRAPHY CLUB:
Performing Life / Michael Ned Holte
Experiments in Autobiography / Maggie Nelson
The Curious Art of Autobiography / Abigail Severance
Graphic Design Walking Diary Club / Gail Swanlund

After Life is collaborative, all-inclusive publication project. Participants each created 100 copies of their own page, and we all collated and stapled it together as a group. This publication was inspired by the wonderful film After Life by Hirokazu Kore-Eda. In the film, deceased people must make a short film about one memory from their life in order to graduate to the afterlife, taking only that film with them to watch for eternity.

Thanks to Gail Swanlund for inviting me to speak at CalArts and for her enthusiasm about this workshop and publication.
