A Manual for Silence is a photo-text booklet based on an ongoing sequence of photographs bearing the same title. Images may tell the narrative, the testimony, via its absence — the vacancy of the subject. Text conjures images by beleaguering the unspeakable — pasting words and sentences onto the invisible form until it reveals a wireframe of the object.
Perhaps there — behind this impediment, the existence of it all is to be found. In the failed correspondence of mumbling planes and shards of breached conventions. In the imminent erosion of understanding, solely a silent touch can soothe.
