In-between (the closer you look at a word the more distantly it gazes back)
Nightfall. Between day and night. In-between (the closer you look at a word the more distantly it gazes back) is a mail artwork, an invitation to both scramble tongues with words and within the earth of the lands to uncover new relations of interconnection. Postcards distributed by the artist contain a prologue and instructions for a participative performance. Read aloud together, to lull a state of relaxed awareness through incantation. Writing it out, over and over, until words are obliterated and a cacophony of new meaning form. Held by the uneven surface of the forest floor. This work values liminal zones, and questions the distance of inter-connection between language and meaning, and the peripheries between our bodies. The title of the work borrows from writer Karl Kraus who wrote the aphorism from his book Half-Truths and One-And-A-Half Truths (1976) which has been translated to "The closer the look one takes at a word, the greater the distance from which it looks back."
