I write what I know on one side of the page
& what I don’t know on the other
I write what I know on one side and what I don’t know on the other, 2020 / Installation: Pratt Library staircase / Text on 53 vinyl strips
The exhibition is on 3 floors of the central atrium in Pratt Institute Library. As such, movement between the exhibited work necessitates climbing up the staircase, which led me to consider its function as a vehicle of transition between the ideas in the show along with its larger role as an aspirational architectural structure. The text that I eventually wrote creates a dialogue between ‘stairs’ and ‘books’, where each riser becomes a page and locus for a thought, & the stairs a sequence of ideas.
An offset zine, I write what I know on one side and what I don’t know on the other, is being published in the Winter issue, 2020 of Journal of Artist Books (JAB), based on the plan for the actual installation.
