An Entanglement: Ancient Texts, Old Marginalia, and Contemporary Art
This essay pivots around the practice of marginalia—notes written in the margins of books and other texts—and also navigates through the practice of my art, with its combination of research, chance occurrence and aesthetic experimentation. It is also a bit of a story, an exploration of how intellectual curiosity and visual fascinations can lead a person onto a new path that has no known destination. Though the practice of art usually produces end products in physical form, art is a process, not a goal, an exploration of ambiguity, not a determination of fact, an opening up of new possibilities, not a pinning down of definitive knowledge.
