Simulations, Now for Sale

Simulations (closed) Simulations on a Two-dimensional Grid  was produced in January 2013 after receiving a hand of cards from Barb Tetenbaum’s Artist Book Ideation Deck. The text, which originates from a portion of David Allen’s 2011 dissertation for the University of Michigan, is a description of a spatial population model. It has been generalized and adapted for the purposes of this project. This book has been letterpress printed, hand-drawn, waxed and folded in an edition of ten on Zerkall paper. Twelve loose sheets are enclosed in a waxed, hand-drawn paper wrapper.

Simulations2 The text reads as follows: Simulations on a two-dimensional grid reveal that if conditions are met to destabilize the equilibrium, individuals cycle out of phase with their neighbors.

If you are heading to the Codex International Book Fair this month, you can see this book in person at the Seager Gray Gallery in Mill Valley, California, where it will be on display until March 9th. The exhibition “Ideation by Chance” features a number of artists who made books using the Artist Book Ideation Deck. To see more about the process of producing this book as well as information about how to get your hands on a new version of the deck of cards designed by Barb Tetenbaum and Julie Chen, see here. My other books will be on display at Codex with Bill and Vicky Stewart of Vamp and Tramp Booksellers. Stop by and say hello to them for me!

Simulations on a Two-dimensional Grid is available for purchase for $325 plus shipping from the United Kingdom. If you are interested in purchasing a copy, you can visit my online shop, visit the Seager Gray Gallery for the exhibition, or contact me at
