my inner-most thoughts
(2012) Book, performance, documenting film and text.
A collection of captured and overheard musings and conversations. This work utilises language and utterings as material to build a collection of nondescript narratives. These various narratives are individually letterpressed, embossed and bound into a twenty-five page annual that looks to comment on the value attributed to a labour, or specialised artistic process. The book is subsequently destroyed in a performance that references the language’s ephemeral properties, and is re-distributed through a paper-making process into a collection of hand-crafted, paper blanks.
The supporting text ‘Accidental Editing’ references the fortuitous process that enabled the collection of the original source material, passing comment on the authoring of the material, and how it is ‘accidentally’ collected and therefore defined through the selection process the artist has undertaken.
