An articulator of text and things
As a typographer, I work with the detailed structuring of a text - working out the hierarchy and the relative emphasis to give meaning through the layout, font choice, spacing and white space. To articulate in speech is the action of putting into words an idea or feeling and this action comes with gestures, pauses and vocal and facial expression. The act of articulating a text gives written words visual cues to the ideas or feeling contained within. As an artist working with video poetry and installation I see my work as an articulation of things. The choice of detail and the nuances of relative hierarchies and emphasis between things (objects, materials, sounds, images) create the idea or feeling in my work.
