This is all experimentation.
I'm still working out the functionality of this website to see what best fits an exhibition format suitable for presenting off-the-cuff work, and one-offs, as well as for more conceptual and feature-length work.
My writing is currently stacked chronologically in the words section, which is a blog format. It's clear this has its limitations--scrolling backwards being a big one for me, and limited layout options for the images. I'm not super happy with it and would prefer to create a page devoted to my essays and poems, leaving my other forms of writing in the blog scroll. And then there are the zines and artist books--where oh where will I put that? Alas.
For now, I've made peace with it all.
I recently migrated some work from the words page over to the gallery pages where the pieces join more cohesively within their fuller conceptual bodies. That same work also appears where it was originally located within the chronology of that blog format, so there's overlap--for now.
I'm also still working out the site's relationships with zoetrope's facebook, twitter, and tumblr pages (I know, tumblr)--none of which I really maintain at all these days. Sigh. Because these platforms tend to function for different purposes and for different audiences, at least that's how they're foisted on us now, I need to think about how their identities differentiate and connect, if at all. I may also start using Vimeo to exhibit the moving image work I'm starting to play around with, another consideration to address. And, like so many things about life, it's all a work in progress. So stay tuned, and thanks for bearing with.
