Mixed Media


The overshadowing amount of text-based content in my work speaks less of a special interest in text as an art medium than it does of a combination of technical, material limitations on the one hand, and a preoccupation with the inseparability of reading and writing (of anything), the force of inference, and structure on the other. The precariousness of the document, the notion of the document, is one focus by which I read much of my work as dealing with these issues.
