Inspired by Felix Gonzalez Torres’s endless prints, I would like to create two printed pieces to be taken by viewers at my exhibit "Correspondence" at Bullseye Gallery in Portland, OR.

Correspondence” is a reflection on the loss of memory and language; to counterbalance that loss I would like to give the viewer a gift to take away and contemplate.

Description: Each book will be printed in an edition of 500 on 11" x 17" paper. Funding will be used to offset print the books; I will do all the design and finishing myself.

Concept: A “secret” book made out of a single sheet of paper. The imagery is designed so that the book reads as a book once folded or in a circular loop when flat.

Exhibit questions:
How does language relate to objects?
Can there be a language of objects?
What happens when there are no words?
What if the objects and the words used to describe them both disappear?

Correspondence:

communication by letters; also: the letters exchanged

a relation between sets in which each member of one set is associated with one or more members of the other

“The correspondence theory of truth states that the truth or falsity of a statement is determined only by how it relates to the world, and whether it accurately describes (i.e., corresponds with) that world.”

the agreement of things with one another
