    How I was made, 2012

    Acrylic, wood, LED Neon

    14” x 480” x 2.5”

    A line of handmade letters is illuminated seemingly at random, challenging the reader to convert forms into words, text, language, and ultimately, perhaps, an idea. The transformation of the individual shapes into information changes the act of reading from passive to active and questions how form/landscape/context/setting interrelate with content. This piece incites curiosity and tasks the mind to determine what is and isn’t language. The poem reads: I must name to find      I do not know how I was made Special Thanks: Green LED Lighting Solutions Inc., Lars Fisk, and Socrates
