Miksimum

is the index page for Jesse Miksic,
a digital dilettante dayjobbing as a UX designer

Loyally feeding the following beasts:

(follow and/or friend me -- if you appear to be a real person capable of passing the human tests, I will probably reciprocate)

General

  • @miksimum on Twitter A random sampling of thoughts and anxieties and signal-boosts and self-promotion.
  • Email me One of many ways of getting in touch, and the one I'm least likely to neglect for long periods.
  • Verbal

  • Benefit of the Doubt My outlet for Media Theory, also used to track other sources
  • @Miksimum on Medium Home to more politics and theory writing, plus reposts from Benefit of the Doubt
  • Berfrois.com A great site that kindly publishes my more polished critical writings
  • 366 Weird Movies An awesome site where I'm an on-and-off contributor
  • Goodreads My book reviews are long enough that I consider this an official creative outlet
  • Visual

  • @miksimum Tumblr Reposting all my visual art from Tumblr
  • @miksimum Instagram Visual art, plus occasional snapshots
  • Symbot on Flickr Digital photography, a hobby on temporary haitus
  • Overheated Media My short video work, on extended haitus since 2012
  • Recent Output

    Aggregated from Benefit of the Doubt and Tumblr, which gives the best representative sample of work in multiple media, I think

    Was gonna draw a full body floating by the door, but then the arm was in the wrong place, so I decided to lean into the weirdness 💪 💪 💪 💪

    I don’t like living in liminal spaces — moving sucks, life changes and transitions are a pain — but I love playing in them, inhabiting them intentionally. I define myself in liminal spaces (train rides, night drives, walks, unfamiliar territories). So that’s why I’m more a Fall person than any other season… the liminal season wrapping around the shelter of home, giving security a dynamic context. Spaces within spaces.
