The Typesetter’s Ruminations


Deconstructing technology down to its components, The Typesetter’s Ruminations draws connections between electronics, their mineral origins, and alphanumeric code. In text-based images composed of chemical formulas for common elements used in electronic devices, she explores the relationship of coding to the materiality of media. Using the substrate as a medium of expression, the works in the exhibition examine how memory is embedded in material: encoded in silicon, gold, and other elements. The artist mines poetry out of chemical composition and the structure of substances, revealing parallels between computer codes, chemical formulas, and human language.
