letters, words and occasional numbers

Artist statement

The idea around the practice of working with letters is to explore an area that was uncomfortable for me. Being dyslexic I have tools that I use four-example audio dictation, recording sound conversations, speech to text or a graphic tablet, where I use a pen to write digitally plus mark making. I found this process to a certain extent allowed for me to let go of my preconceived ideas around art, allowing for a more freeing, sincere autonomous workflow.

Another interesting outcome that starts to manifest with the relationship that goes on when dictating to the computer and the use of hardware, software technology, often finding the computer over writing redirecting almost finding its own path so to some extent technology is the artist and allow for mistakes to happen and accept this as okay then the mistake becomes the work.

I also looked behind what a digital image is which is built-up of binary and hexadecimal, numbers and letters using software I would extract the code from the digital visual image until I was left with letters and numbers then using photographic software rebuild the images
