you were right about everything
with bits of overheard conversations, to be rolled
bits of overheard conversations, to be rolled
for one year, i kept a series of small notebooks, in which i would record conversations i overheard between strangers: in restaurants, on trains, or wherever i was.
i transcribed small pieces of these conversations to 3" pieces of canvas, rolled each one six times into itself, twelve times into a piece of parchment paper, and twenty-four times into a piece of thin twine.
the objects, which now total over 9,000, are to be opened and read by viewers, who either disregard or apply the disjointed information to the context of their own life experience, thus shifting the meaning of the original text.
