Codes and Questions for Anyone Who Goes Anywhere: Towards a Community Framework for Visiting Citizens 

This is an essay about being a visitor. It is about community, art, tourism, and place. It is a proposal for empathy, listening, and learning.

This essay is useful for anyone who goes anywhere, but in particular for artists who make socially engaged projects with communities.

Purchase a PDF copy of the essay below. It will be emailed to you. It is a nice-looking PDF. Thank you for supporting an independent artist!

This essay was originally published in The Changing Times, Issue 4: Unincorporated Marin County.


I live and work in the San Francisco Bay Area, on unceded Coast Miwok and Karkin Ohlone land.
