This series of screen prints incorporate text with more graphic elements. The text arises from inquiries into Zen literature and practice as well as the philosophy of technology. Each segment of writing is an articulation of a certain sentiment or sensation which has emerged from these two traditions. Questions such as how to access the most genuine parts of ourselves and how we might pursue them shape the direction of the research behind these inquiries.
Colour plays an integral role in the expression of these sentiments, establishing the emotional setting in which the texts and image plays out. The letters of the text are treated as simply another object of the visual composition, the hand cut stencil font substituting the easy legibility of a digital type face for a more cartographical approach. The images are sometimes literal and other times a begged borrowed and stolen collection of mongrel symbology. This results in an unusual reading experience which is reflective of the Zen literature from which inspiration from these prints is partially drawn, where language is used in strange of often obtuse ways in an effort to point to something beyond the words usual meaning.
