Work made with lead, paper, industrial felt, type, and metal punch. Includes a video. "The Book: Silent is meant to be handled by a viewer. To read the book is to engage with qualities of the materials themselves: the relative weight of the lead and the paper, the texture of the surfaces, the way that the lead sheets create networks of marks on the paper cards." - "The Video: Of course there is a perversity about naming a book Silent when it makes so much noise. This video is a meditation on the sound that is bound up in the objects that we make and their gradual disappearance into the object itself." -
