Project Projects co-curated (with Elizabeth Thomas) and designed this comprehensive book on the 30-year history of Berkeley Art Museum's MATRIX project series; the book itself constitutes MATRIX Project #229. Presenting archival documents, ephemera, and images in addition to newly-commissioned interviews, the resulting 560-page volume reflects the experience of navigating an archive. Throughout the program's three decades, each MATRIX show had a corresponding brochure produced; the book systematically presents each brochure as thumbnails throughout the book, as a focused means of tracking historical changes in design, technology, and institutions.
