Sitting in studio, I map out the constellation I will draw on black mayfair. I'll have to take photos of it. But when the paper is facing down, it will read like a map of stars on the ground. But each piece can be turned and held up to the light to reveal small stars through the perforated holes. . . both sky and ground. That will be my first chapter.
The second chapter will be a stack of transparencies. Inspired by Corner's theme of layering, the thickened surface, the amalgam of relationships where new formal arrangements are possible. Each transparency will be one line of a large contour map. Stacked, these transparencies will represent the topography, the layered remnants of voices from my own personal history.
The third chapter is still a mystery. I am swaying between a large map folded or an accordion book. I feel that some linear quality would be nice to synthesize the first two chapters that are unbound and non-linear.
1. This chapter is a series of letters
2. This chapter is a series of footnotes
3. This chapter is a series of maps
I'm not sure if I should go back and reinforce this motif of a map in my previous chapters. Maybe just in form, they can refer to this conceit.
I am indebted to friends who have helped me see more clearly.
Thank you Marcinku and Thank you Jo.
