Comprised of prints and modular wall-like structures Glyph morphs a variety of media and methods to test their defining elements as rendered through the employment of various digitized and real life brushes. Made in an analogue color darkroom the prints are done on photographic C-paper and build up from multiple exposures of filtered light. They combine projected images of exported Photoshop files with traditional photogram techniques where objects are placed directly on the surface of the paper. Although the prints are highly layered the photographic paper leaves them absolutely flat and conceals the choreography of their production. The flatness of the prints is contrasted with the lushness of the textures applied to the wall-like structures. Distributed throughout the space and worked over with a solution of pigments and plaster the structures record the syntax of every movement employed.
