Graphemes (2008)

Graphemes are the smallest meaningful individual characters within a given writing system, such as letters, punctuation marks, mathematical operators and musical symbols.

For each work in this series, a grapheme defines the border between image sequences of the viewer, which are in varying states of temporal flux. The symbol itself has no positive appearance, but is only recognized as a difference between the changing images.

The title of each work is the symbol's standardized Unicode character name. These titles hint ambiguously (or not so ambiguously) at the logic of the temporal and interactive effects, creating imaginary relationships between text and image.
