word-bloc

James Dorahy Project Space, Sydney 2011

 

How much of our cultural identity is derived from language?

In word-bloc by recombining and recycling text the literal meanings of the words are pushed towards a visual grammar where the words, shifting and transforming, are reconfigured as pattern.

In this work I have used the words

anxiety

silence

breath

tukutuku 

and a series of numbers
