I have a kind of direction now. Mike suggested that throughout my work, there is a very strong relationship between images and words. I was interested this summer of exploring the relationship between reader and writer after looking at Ann Hamilton's work.
In the PBS transcript of her Art:21 segment, she envisioned two rooms: one for the reader and one for the writer. Each room would sit a ventriloquist who would throw his/her voice. The voice's origin would be changed perceptibly, but not physically.
ventro = belly loqui = speak
It was thought that there were voices of the unliving who took up residence in the stomach.
Hamilton describes her role as an artist as a reader. She did an installation with a projection of a pencil eating a line, combining reading and writing.
She wants to leave no material trace.
I'm interested in the erasure of authorship. What is the relationship between reading and drawing/writing as an artist?
