Rarely post here anymore but I saw this show Phantom Punch at Bates College and was
thoroughly impressed with the work and the remarkable curation. Below are two pieces I spent a lot of time with.

This GIF is an outtake, I believe, of his video installation.
Wish I could find it online!

happy to have blurbed my 1st book, happier still that it was camouflage country by Mel Bosworth and Ryan Ridge with illustrations by Jacob Heustis, from Queen's Ferry press.
"Swallow this book like it’s the last cold Michelob Ultra. Read it, do a little dance, then take it out back and shoot it. Take down this book like it’s the last thing you will ever do in this life, because I’m telling you, it most likely will be. Be with this book, and I mean be with it. Is it poetry? Is it prose? Who the hell cares. Bosworth and Ridge are great literary beasts by themselves, to be read often and carefully. Together they have become one wild fucking animal. These are the real bits of us, the hidden bits and the exposed, laid out in one stunning sentence after another. I’ll always keep Camouflage Country close by--I cried laughing, I have never read anything like it." --Ryan MacDonald, author of The Observable Characteristics of Organisms
