Anomalies travel from wood to paper to the retina. The information is picked up in pieces and processed in the world of mind; the expectations to exist and be “real” and those “ideas” become synonymous with “differences.” These "printed matter" series which I have begun in 2016 are exercises in finding notations that constructed text fields. These evolved into the notated collage work exploring boundaries of fiction, theories, and news. Damaged or devalued books are opened up to create a flow in an attempt to resuscitate a new algorithm, in sculptural and animated forms. These works are a type of antithesis to contemplate on when the battery runs out of our handheld gadgets.
