"Love Shack." Molly Rideout, May 2014

Walls made from 900 romance novels and 3,000 nails with no other supports. Wooden roof tiled with romance novel covers. Premiered at Grin City Collective’s pop-up gallery show in Brooklyn, Iowa.

It’s a freaking child magnet.

A big thank you to writer Kevin Haworth for this beautiful, hand-bound edition of his essay collection “Famous Drownings in Literary History.” It’s the second book I have ever been acknowledged in. What a surprise!

The second of a trial vinyl installation on the exterior window of Grin City Collective’s tofu factory. The paragraph I wrote this winter. Lessons learned: it’s worth the extra money and wasted vinyl to print the paragraph with the dimensions and line breaks you want. Otherwise it takes three hours to install crooked.

A trial vinyl installation for a new series I’m working on. Getting back in the swing of vinyl work on the window of the Grin City Collective factory.
