Smoke, burn scars, lemon juice, hope on paper with all-over large-format laser debossing. Open set of 3 with “Enso/Zero” burn monoprints one white print, on 300g/msq white velvet somerset paper, 30 by 44 inches (760mm x 1120mm). With Emily York and Courtney Sennish.
In 2019, a heavily-redacted version of the Mueller Report was made public. On the thirteenth of May 2022, another heavily-redacted addendum was made public as part of the Paul Manafort sentencing, the Mueller Manafort Response. Both of these documents together are 486 pages: if every page of the combined document was shrunk and put into a rectangular grid, the resulting document would fill the paper edge to edge, and each page would measure 1.75” tall by 1” wide.
The background image is this graphic projection, but only the parts of each page that have been redacted, blacking out the text and hiding meaning and comprehension. Many pages (and key parts of these documents) are unintelligible to the public, years and years after the events described.
We stand on the shoulders of giants.
