The Middle

The Middle

2008, Colored Pencil and Graphite on Paper

For this work, I tried to reveal patterns possibly embedded in the written and spoken language of a wide range of sources – casual, formal, personal, political, etc. In the upper half of the drawing, I used the first several sentences of each source (the beginnings of stories), defining the patterns of speech by letter type. In the lower half, I used the last sentences of the same sources (the ends of the stories), defining the patterns again by letter type. The patterns I chose evolved and changed as I worked.
