Dissected Pigmented Inkjet Print and T-Pins

In the early 2000’s I began keeping detailed notes on every lecture, workshop, book and article I came across. This journal became a massively detailed collection of ideas for my art practice. It was for my eyes only.
In early 2010, I began using this journal as creative material. Page by page I traced/dissected/disassembled/excavated the 10 year evolution of my thoughts and ideas about art. Written ideas were physically cut into the pages of the journal, exposing key passages and jettisoning others. The floor becomes littered with expunged fragments of text forming new narratives.
