ABOUT NO. 1: HOMOCARDIA:
Enlarged, found letterforms, sampled from a collection of identity-centric contemporary plays (including Paul Rudnick’s Jeffrey, Lillian Hellman’s The Children’s Hour, Jane Wagner’s The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, and Neil LaBute’s Bash) recombine to form an array of interactive prefixes and suffixes commenting on the shifting nuances of humanity and sexuality within a label-centric America.

6.25 x 12.75 inches. Hardback with black cloth cover, double-wire bound, 20 leaves, each a digital inkjet print of reconstituted words scanned from contemporary plays. Printed on 100 lb. Bristol board. Black, railroad board end pages. All pages are cut across the vertical center to allow for multiple word hybridizations. Signed edition of 10.
