I recently collaborated with artist Edith Abeyta. From her release:
The catalog for the exhibition is a specially commissioned three-part
prose and poetry volume by Allyson Shaw
https://feralstrumpet.wordpress.com/ Her text is integral to each
tale/ installation and its optimum utilization would be to read each
corresponding section while viewing the installation. An ever better
scenario (is it possible to exceed optimization?) is to have a friend
reading it to you while traveling through the exhibition.
