SUCK THE FYSTEM, released in conjunction with the gallery exhibition GREATER HITS,  is a collection of single design elements taken from web and digitally exaggerated to emulate pattern or textile designs. Risograph -printed by Issue Press in 8 colors, the interior pages of each copy of SUCK THE FYSTEM are shuffled, making each publication unique. The choice to sequence the artwork at random results in page after page of contrasting, complimentary and happily accidental patterns. 

The forward to the book includes a transcription of an absurdist discourse between Jonathan Campolo, Greyory Blake & audience members at MICA in March 2014. The talk offers solutions to the problems related to authorship that frequently arise these days when publishing work on the internet.
