She frequently participates with Matthew Driggs in the collective identity “Owen Driggs.” Their most recent works together include Come In, We’re Open (O. Driggs, E. Abeyta, C. Zou), a growing archive of over seventy short interviews with people whose actions are currently defining social practice; and Mapping Bio-intimacy, a residency project at the Montalvo Arts Center that supports experiences of the natural world as a network of intimate relationships. Janet writes for the KCET ARTbound blog and is co-author of Preserving a Home for Veterans (w. T. Lyons, L. Bon, R. Fox), Les Figues Press, 2012, and Something More Than Just Survival (w. J. Rochielle) Proboscis, 2012. Other writings have been published by Artillery, Art Review, ArtUS, and Emergency Index.
