The event of a thread, Installation view, The Park Avenue Armory, NewYork, 2012

The event of a thread is made of many crossings of the near at hand and the far away:

it is a body crossing space, is a writer’s hand crossing a sheet of paper, is a voice crossing a room in a paper bag, is a reader crossing with a page and with another reader, is listening crossing with speaking, is an inscription crossing a transmission, is a stylus crossing a groove, is a song crossing species, is the weightlessness of suspension crossing the calling of bell or bellows, is touch being touched in return.

It is a flock of birds and a field of swings in motion. It is a particular point in space at an instant of time”
