Artist Statement:

    Text is a technology. All technology is inevitably destined to become obsolete, superseded by an update. As electronic reading devices become mainstream, books will be displaced to the shelves of the antiquated, alongside VHS and cassette tapes. As the text medium is shifting from static pages to moving image screens, text absorbs the attributes of the medium, becoming motion-text and image-text. The medium is intertwined with computation, so text images are influenced by Boolean logic. Letter-symbols, no longer a transparent substrate of verbal communication, become iconic image elements representing the marriage of human and machine thinking.
