Dog Eat Dog
Artist Statement

Since the invention of the printing press accessibility to the written word has become both easier and more prevalent. The vast amount of text available to us now is overwhelming. The Internet, possibly the biggest leap forward in communication since language developed, has for the first time in history linked human thoughts and ideas across the planet with the help of text. Newspapers are competing harder than ever to maintain relevance as they try to postpone their use by date. Digital communication and social media have created a hungry beast placing ever-increasing demands on our time and interest.

Competition for our attention through written text has created a cacophony of words and visual stimulation all vying for our consideration. Advertising, indecipherable graffiti, street signage and anyone with a message to share, are falling over each other to be noticed. This can unfortunately mean we miss what is important amongst the clutter of text as we try to navigate through its volume.
The rest in a piece of music can be more significant than the notes themselves. In a similar way the obliteration of text, like the pause in music, can have more impact than just more writing.
