my thesis for my undergraduate degree was a diptych installation entitled Truth/Fiction the wax side is "truth" and the graphite side is "fiction"

Image
whole things

Image
so you can see the print on the "truth" side

Image
so you can see the print on the "fiction" side

Image
"fiction" book detail

Image
"truth" book detail.

my work is notoriously hard to photograph.

to clarify in case anyone is confused: neither book is meant to be readable, you aren't going blind! the marks in the "truth" book are meant to mimic words but are actually derived from the backs of embroidery, and the "fiction" book, while it started out in english, was made with an unsteady medium, so as the pages are turned the words become unintelligible.

oh! and here is another large piece which was part of the same body of work that didn't make the cut because of a lack of wall space and desire to make one cohesive installation.

ah! thanks you guys!

daisychain: if it makes you feel better, I had to write a 30pg thesis too, which was slightly less interesting than making the work itself.

Damn, I wish I could have been there to experience it in person! You really should sell some of your stuff online - I would love to be able to buy one of your pieces some day!

So good! Did you ever do that same print on some kind of scarf or something and put in on Instagram or did I dream that? If not, you should because I would buy like, lots.
