A culmination of a half-decade of work created across numerous countries on both sides of the globe, Thinking Of You intertwines a complex range of personal projects into one, including the performance based photography of Jason Jaworski’s 1000 Miles project created in collaboration with MOCA, the process based images from his project SEA which had him developing his negatives with ash from a bomb site in Mexico City, the site-specific wandering from Rome Alone where he followed employees of several counterfeit factories in Taiwan and had his work printed at them, to the documentary theater of LABYRINTH where the artist followed a gang of little people through different slums in the Philippines where they created set pieces and scenes to act out for the camera.

Created originally as an exhibition of work spread out across two large scale installations, a mural of text and a video piece projected onto glass, the book rendition of the work is a unique production designed by the artist to evoke the feeling of shuffling through old memories, transmuting the common exhibition catalogue form into an elevated artist card deck, with each card having an artist image on one side and a strip of text on the other. Devoted as much to play as it is a personal object, each bit of text comes from the artist's personal memory and is designed to be read in any order and still be understood, accompanied by over fifty images that complement each line of text evenly. With multiple ways to read it, either through a random shuffling, a carefully considered organization, or by laying the cards out and matching them like an old children’s game of memory, the book is meant to evolve and change over time, with a different reading for every viewing.

The book was selected as one of the top ten photobooks of 2015 by 10X10 Photobooks, while the project itself was nominated for an ICP Infinity Award in the Arts category.
