David Reinfurt, an independent graphic designer and writer in New York, will present Dexter Sinister's recent work and discuss the endless task of tracking versions.

On the first business day of 2000, Reinfurt formed O-R-G inc., a flexible graphic design practice composed of a constantly shifting network of collaborators.

Together with graphic designer Stuart Bailey, Reinfurt established Dexter Sinister in 2006 -- a workshop in the basement at 38 Ludlow Street on the Lower East Side in New York. The workshop is intended to model a Just-In-Time economy of print production, running counter to the contemporary assembly-line realities of large-scale publishing.

This involves avoiding waste by working on-demand, using local, cheap machinery, considering alternative distribution strategies, and collapsing distinctions of editing, design, production, and distribution into one efficient activity.

Dexter Sinister published the semiannual arts magazine Dot Dot Dot from 2006-11. Reinfurt recently launched a new umbrella project called The Serving Library with Stuart Bailey and Angie Keefer.

Reinfurt was a 2010 United States Artists Rockefeller Fellow in Architecture and Design and currently teaches at Princeton University.

He graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1993 and received an MFA from Yale University in 1999.
