Ellabug is a simple story about non-traditional families that follows Ella, a small but strongly willed young ladybug, as she begins to question her identity. Raised in a family made up of different animals, Ellabug desires 'normality' and uniformity which she finds in a family of ants whom she meets in the garden. Ella decides to escape the craziness in her own home by joining the ants.

Media Authorship
Edited by Cynthia Chris and David A. Gerstner
Published by Routledge and the American Film Institute

Contemporary media authorship is frequently collaborative, participatory, non-site specific, or quite simply goes unrecognized. In this volume, media and film scholars explore the theoretical debates around authorship, intention, and identity within the rapidly transforming and globalized culture industry of new media. Defining media broadly, across a range of creative artifacts and production cultures―from visual arts to videogames, from textiles to television―contributors consider authoring practices of artists, designers, do-it-yourselfers, media professionals, scholars, and others.

My contribution to the book was a chapter entitled "Abductive Authorship of the New Media Artifact"
