of short films that appropriate the Mexica tradition into a contemporary
frame of metaphors and references. email@example.com

is a writer who lives in Los Angeles.
As an artist, besides writing, editing and researching, he makes
art. A practioner of the plastic arts, he studies both the poetic
and political through efforts in different forms and locations
that play with disjunctures between the phenomenological moment
and historic perspectives. Verdant, he has a deeply abiding faith
in the criminal element that lives in his garden. email@example.com
was in a Junior High play about the lost civilization of Atlantis;
a member of chorus, he "sang the body electric." When
he isn't celebrating the moon and the earth he can be found selling
avocados at farmers markets, putting in applications for teaching
jobs he'll never get, petting his cats, and scheming up ways to
use the word praxis. He likes meeting new people who inevitably
will be classified as either theory or practice. firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sam White lives
concealed in the breast pocket of a meandering giant who, for
many years, has quietly commanded Sam to scribble his notes on
lint and coarse pocket thread. When the writings are complete
the giant holds the lint and coarse thread up to his enormous
eye and mispronounces nearly every syllable. In this way the giant
has gained a wife, a lover, and many admirers who travel countless
arduous miles to hear the giant's brave ruminations on such subjects
as the evil of the tides, action gardening,
and the evil of children. For his service Sam is rewarded periodically
with a crushing avalanche of cornbread that Sam must eat his way
out of all the while giving thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org
