Word Matter addresses the metamorphosis of words and books from explicitly historical, quotidian objects to altered organic matter. Books generate meaning by simply existing in a literate culture and are recognized as a time based medium. Language paradigms in relation to visual literate systems support the repetition of moving your eyes from left to right, turning the pages in the same pattern. By deconstructing books and reducing their form, contradictions in the formerly known order of the book are revealed. Suspension frees the viewer from traditional interpretations of books and words, and offers new ways to decipher meaning in the repeating matter. It is through repetition that new visual systems emerge. Displaced and repeating words, books, bark, rock formations, waves and landscape serve as alternative interpretations of systemic interrelated matter.
