Hello my name is Steve Or Steven Read

And this is my website. I started building it in 2005 and today you can browse over 1,000 pages of content spanning two decades of activity. As a software developer, artist, photographer, musician, collector, scientist, writer, and entrepreneur, this site grows steadily through a practice of "autodidocumenticism" with the basic idea that "life is art is content"!

JPEG file found recently on eBay, creator unknown. I seem to remember that the item for sale contained no photos other than this one. A damn fresh image, I would say.

Tried to start a shrimp scampi tumblr last year but pretty much failed

When you do a google image search for the words "shrimp scampi" the results are 99.99% color photos of plates of shrimp scampi, as if there was no other way for people to conceptualize the words shrimp scampi. I started the tumblr with the notion that the posts were going to be photos of menus and other shrimp scampi metadata, instead of the typical food porn, in hopes of eventually influencing the google image results. Variety is the spice of life.

Today is April 29th, National Shrimp Scampi Day, and this is getting me really jazzed up and inspired to try and get the Maybe Shrimp Scampi tumblr going again.

New Linocut Print Series (sneak peak)

Enjoyed making this series of linoleum block prints at Kala in Berkeley (in the old Heinz ketchup factory). Better documentation than a mobile photo to be posted here eventually of course, but what the hell here they are now. Some sort of quasi-spontaneous lattice protein folding thing. Maybe its a thought pattern, or a memory signature, the key to my cortex.

Baby Care App Drawing

Screenshot of an android app called Baby Care by 6677g.com - a game where you take care of various babies without any sort of points, goals, or strategies whatsoever. When you are done taking care of a baby, you then get to use drawing tools on the baby, with the option of a screen grab. Here you can see I thoroughly washed the baby, leaving soap lather intact (chose not to utilize the rinse tool) I then made my drawing onto the baby. Absurdity perfection.

This is the end of my front page :)
