Abstract:

This installation involves translanguaging, scale and ratio in objects, such as; an expanded crumpled lined paper, a heap of 365 miniature cahier Canada notebooks, stop-motion animations, a stereophonic montage of two texts and finally a performance; the remains of which becomes part of the exhibition. This is an exercise that observes the power of metaphorical shifting and the space in which words and lines are simultaneously read and seen.  Examined through a studio based research using the materiality of paper, language and asemic writing in student cahier Canada notebooks, specifically the blue lines and red margin on the page that reflect fluctuating power dynamics and implicit associations in language. This complex of forces in repetition and scale evokes indeterminacy within language systems and the radical hollow at the center to locate the ( i ) in the cahier Canada.
