- The Search for New Media: Late 20th Century Art and Technology in Japan Common Ground Publishing, 2012. : This book makes parallels between the process of production in traditional media and the reiterative algorithm in digital media within Japan's avant-garde of the 1970s and 80s. An exploratory attitude toward the abstract concept of the computer's virtual environment, and the inclination to see the algorithm as the process of art, may have its roots in these early experimental currents, which gives insight into the nature of non-narrative interactive and performance art in today's digital media realm of Japan.

- "Chinese Characters as Concept and the International Language of Visual Art"
- The International Journal of New Media, Technology and the Arts, 2018
- This paper addresses the reality that a number of artists of China and the Chinese diaspora use Chinese characters in their work. Some of the characters are legible and some are not, but all are wrought with deep layers of meaning. The fact that the characters originated as pictures makes them even more relevant for the visual arts as an international language. The essay examines how the artistic and aesthetic roots of Chinese calligraphy serve as inspiration in the work of some of the contemporary artists addressed within and discusses the conceptual content of their work.
