Solo Navigations I - 2008

mixed media on mylar and paper, photographs, book cloth

51/2 x 6 x 3/4

© 2011

This book binds several individual drawings I made in 2008 into a book. These pages were made over a period of several months in 2008 mainly to combat the tedium of waiting for performances to start. Arriving early enough to get a good seat also meant waiting a long time for the performance to begin. I’d get fidgety and bored and sometimes felt conspicuous because I was by myself.

I made myself a little kit that fit easily into a handbag and wrote on pages of gridded mylar to wile the moments away. Every space of the gridded page has a letter; there are no spaces between words, and no punctuation. When the end of a row of grids was reached, I’d turn the paper 90 degrees and continue writing. I left blank areas on the gridded page that I could later work on in the studio. The cover image is a photograph of me from the late 80’s. Bound with paper tabs sewn on tapes and case into a split board cover.
