Language is a fundamental aspect of what makes us human. As its use in the form of text becomes more common, its usage becomes less nuanced in most situations. The art of dialogue, the poetry of written communication is constantly reinvented as a cultural activity. I am interested in slowing down language, playing with it, letting a word have a life of its own, allowing the viewer to complete the meaning of a letter.
The larger groupings of letters and words and the forms they take accumulate into a new language form. Ultimately we each own and restructure language to extend its potential for expression. Communication is most interesting when it gives but also demands something from us. In that sense it connects us through it forms and ideas.
