A book of white


The evil that machinery is doing is not merely in the consequence of its work but in the fact that it makes men themselves machines also.'
- Oscar Wilde

We seem to judge only by an end result, the execution. That which we overlook or that which appears empty may well have consisted of much before it become nothing. We pay much attention to non-existence but never look and see what is actually there.

White drawing ink and white on screen is a metaphor to suggest this. The left pages show scanned drawings, originally made by hand and on the right pages, a drawing made with the computer. Although both were created by using the exactly the same rules and actions – the results are without doubt, very different.

A Thematic Exploration by the MA Students of Central Saint Martins
exhibited at Westminster Reference Library 20-31 January 2009

Using the inherent repetition of Braille, I created patterns.
The numbers 0, 1, 2, appear as characters from the word "Twenty/Ten", which can be read and understood in a variety of ways: “twenty_ten_, 2010_, 2010, 20_10_, t_w_e_n_t_y__t_e_n_, 2_0_1_0_, twenty_10___, t___w___e___n___t___y___t___e___n___, 20_t_e_n_, 2___0___1___0___."
