Scroll

Scroll - an investigation into memory, state, ritual and composition. These are some selections from 2018. Each night, regardless of whether emmy was home, camping in the Gila national forest, or staying at an impeccable mansion for a friend's wedding, the brown paper was unrolled just before bed, the ink carefully uncapped and the only demand to make a mark. When a section became unmanagable, the paper was torn - the scroll ultimately exists now in six or seven sheafs. The beginning and ending dates were not recorded but approximately speaking, the scroll represents March 2018- November 2018, when the roll ran out.
