about the saved messages series:

These papers are blueprints of ancient graffiti, remnants of the documentation of graffiti in an ancient Egyptian temple. As objects in themselves they are beautiful the calligraphic writing scrawled here and there across the sheets of paper are fascinating.

This history only adds to the depth of the piece as I explore the movement of the marks across the paper, deciding whether to incorporate or obscure them, expressing a mystery and sense of what it is like to be a stranger in a strange land.
