Maurice Maultz

Maurice Maultz is an artist & essayist currently moving into Chinatown, NYC. Much of his work deals with affects, with the strange ways that alien feelings, desires & compulsions can somehow propel out of environments and objects right through the senses into one's person (where they are often mistaken for one's own), and then on to one's actions. Maurice is particularly interested in how the behaviors and characteristics of what we now call affects were once known and dealt with as spirits or demons in premodern times.
