    “Proverbs” is a series of textual sculptures that express a set of  ambiguities about  transactions and relationships. Money, Power, Time, Emotion, Regret, Laughter, Memory are the first set of key concepts. These are the scaffolding on which a set of  concrete thoughts is built, which, like proverbs, can act as the currency of conversation. 

    Each “proverb” is a frieze made out of text incised on to a horizontal plane. The proverbs are activated  by fluctuations of an electrical signal that illuminate different configurations of the words in the text. Each configuration yields a terse new sense, sometimes contrarian, sometimes tangential, always precise. Light dances across the words, the proverbs change, meaning multiplies.
