the Works

Like Apollo, fashion neither speaks nor hides – but gives signs.

The main archive of artistic research hosted under SelfPassage has now hibernated. The explorations of fashion empowerment, hacktivism, and not least the recyclopedia, must now emerge from your hands, dear reader.

Much of the two decades of work under SelfPassage can be found in articles and books. This page presents pdfs and links to the self-published works of SelfPassage.
