detail of panels on shelves
About this project:
This installation consists of 72 panels arranged in a grid pattern on narrow wooden shelves. Each panel is hand-painted with 768 invented characters which are reminiscent of ancient hieroglyphics. Each of the resulting characters, 55,296 in all, is unique and reflects the artist's meditations on the subject of censorship.
