I began working on objects connected with the Great War in 2002. I chose photographs from the war and painted over them digitally, cutting parts out, “rearranging” the pictures. This fragmentation made new images arise, transmitting ideas and messages that were not — or not directly — visible in the originals.
For steve’s notes, see Icarus in No Man’s Land.
Qarrtsiluni (2005-2013) was a groundbreaking online literary magazine, one of the first to fully exploit blog software. Though we never quite realized our dream of creating a print-on-demand option for each issue, being online does mean that our back issues remain accessible indefinitely, so there's that. And we published some damn fine stuff — check it out.
