The paper will take as its focus the multi-pronged project Psychic Outlaws, simultaneously a novella, written by the author; a group exhibition of contemporary artworks based on the novella and exhibited at the Luckman Gallery on the campus of California State University, Los Angeles, in Fall 2010; a limited edition book and exhibition catalogue published by the gallery; and a text-only e-book published by the author. Both meaning and form of the story—and of the book—shift and expand with each visual and textual format, mirroring the current of transformation and transfiguration woven throughout the novella’s structure and plot. This project casts a new lens on a text’s singularity and crosses boundaries between the visual and verbal while embodying a new and experimental possibility for defining the book.
