JOEY SELLERS

Writer / Conceptual Artist / Independent Researcher

Welcome (to the live redesign happening right now, August 2018).

Let’s give the cabin a moment to pressurize…

Yes, that’s better.

Hi. Thank you for visiting. My name is Joey and somehow you’ve landed here and are about to see some of my work.

Coming soon: I’m starting a campaign on Patreon!

THINK

I started Ape Con Myth for the same reason everyone starts a conceptual art think tank.

I couldn’t think of anything better to do.

I was also looking to create an umbrella concept to cover the increasingly diverse list of formats I was working in.

WATCH

I have made two short films but, you know, post-production was never my strong suit.
Thankfully my friend, Dylan Sanford, director and cinematographer extraordinaire, is hosting my first one, Somehow I Went Wrong.
I’m lucky to be part of his portfolio.

Meanwhile, here’s a short video work created for the great Lee Walton‘s Making Changes series.
Red Hook, Brooklyn was the perfect neighborhood for the exercise.

READ

I write things. … Many things.

Here’s a favorite from the archive…

BOWL

Did I mention I’ve bowled in 49 states?

It all started with a simple question: How many states could we bowl in over a three-day weekend?
The idea came up on a Tuesday and on Thursday we were off.
In 76 hours we drove from New York City to my hometown of Memphis, TN and back, bowling in 17 states along the way.

Three more trips took us through all the continental states,
but it’s been every-person-for-themselves with Hawaii and Alaska,
which two of our bowling crew have achieved! (I still need Hawaii.)

These were heavily documented journeys that one day must be shared in full…

FOLLOW

The good thing about following me on social networks is that I rarely use them…

Or were you looking for Bartleby?
