"Text" was created for an exhibit in Vilnius Lithuania, the 5th International Artist's Book Triennial 2009. I chose to interpret the given title with a box (6" x 7" x 3" D) covered with graffiti and containing 4 wooden scrolls, each with a different expression of "text": Braille (the word "text" repeated,) a Khipu (knotting of the ancient Incas,) a polished piece of wormwood, and a palimpsest typewriter ribbon from which all the words had been washed and the logo "text" typed on. In the bottom was an accordian-style book covered with black book cloth,
the inside covers made of handmade paper with letters suspended in the pulp,
each page represented one of the scrolls.
