Phases of the Moon #6: "the hope that house built"

January 28, 2021, 40 pages, half letter size. US$8ppd., available via Etsy.

 

21 photos + a reflective essay about trauma & punk.

excerpt: "This is an archive, but perhaps not entirely an ode to house shows that took place in Athens, Georgia, from 2007-2012. It's tempting to frame the collection as a devotional hymn to human contact — what better time than our seemingly-endless quarantine to sing the praises of sweaty skin slipping against strangers swimming through a miasma of alcohol and wild abandon? But for me, this feels more like an excision. I feel(fear) sometimes like I've spent 15 years gathering material for a retrospective which would finally explain All This — my stacks of notecards, rough drafts, and false starts tacked upon the wall under a web of red string like some conspiracy theory: See? This is where it happened. Trying to find a way back, as it were, to a time before trauma."
