“Industrial. On Hacking Consciousness and Reprogramming Language” – Mousse Publishing.
Co-authored with Marco Mazzi, this book brings to light a part of my ongoing research on the glitches of the unconscious mind, non-linear narrative structures, the self-sabotage strategies of consciousness and their impact on creative practices across different media.
It includes the essays “The Narrative of The Unconscious” and “The Phenomenology of Programming”.
Book design for CONTROL by Armando Lulaj and Marco Mazzi, published by Silvana Editoriale.
“Albania, 1997. A year of social and political upheavals, anarchy, controversies, emigration. The toxic seeds of neoliberalism sprouting in an already wounded country. Control is a mirror of complexity encompassing history, politics, contemporary art and writing, hovering between the bluntness of a chat between friends and a delirious piece of fiction. At its core, a conversation between artists Armando Lulaj and Marco Mazzi revolving around the cornerstones of Lulaj's artistic practice, at its peripheries, elusive fragments of conceptual writing by M. Mazzi.”

The artwork opposes the dense and piercing sonic patters characterizing the album with the ehtereal an gentle lines of a continuous line drawing.
