ABOUT THE WORK

The “Acquaintance” diptych explores gender representation though turn of phrase.

The digital images are generated by Seær, an artist-designed text delivery system that combines custom software, laser projection, and stone impregnated with photoluminescence pigment.  John Cayley’s notion of the ‘catastrophic moment’ — the boundary points of signification —  is brought to life when Seær’s visual forms slip between non-specificity to legibility, between the graphic and the symbolic.
