Comprised of prints and modular wall-like structures Glyph morphs a variety of
media and methods to test their defining elements as rendered through the
employment of various digitized and real life brushes. Made in an analogue
color darkroom the prints are done on photographic C-paper and build up from
multiple exposures of filtered light. They combine projected images of exported
Photoshop files with traditional photogram techniques where objects are placed
directly on the surface of the paper. Although the prints are highly layered the
photographic paper leaves them absolutely flat and conceals the choreography of
their production. The flatness of the prints is contrasted with the lushness of the
textures applied to the wall-like structures. Distributed throughout the space and
worked over with a solution of pigments and plaster the structures record the
syntax of every movement employed.
