Description

In this work, verbal descriptions of visual artworks as well as passages excerpted from books and essays have been transcribed into Braille. Each page is photographed in a way that interprets an essential element of the text that it features, layering description onto description and questioning what exactly is lost or gained in translation. The transfiguration of tactile code into printed image serves as a metaphor, both for the power of photography to aestheticize the mundane and for the limitations inherent in the act of recording the world in two dimensions.
