Artist: Naomi Kaly

It’s not a book (date n.a)
Glass, digital projection, audio

Projected on a translucent glass, is a video of the artist, writing an English
text in the opposite direction of convention (i.e.right to left); When mirrored,
one’s own language becomes opaque. To decipher the text, viewers
use the ’rear’ side of the glass.
Charcoal sound confronts the unmediated material world of handwriting,
with the digital, intangible, modern version. Facilitated by digital tools, the
glass becomes a virtual page emphasizing the ephemerality of language.
