At the End There Were XXXs is a piece about language and how we often encrypt our communication with others, creating the need to decipher our “code”. The scroll was created on a 1940s Smith Corona typewriter. What began with the idea of using whole words soon became an exploration of single letter forms illustrating the way we often bury our meaning in sounds, gestures and incomplete words. The scroll is meant to be rolled from top to bottom by the viewer.
