art for the blind

my recent work, and photos from my show this weekend. all are acrylic painted wood panel, hammered with copper nails and copper wire, all encased in resin. hand built wood frames. drawer pulls are found. each piece has a phrase in braille nailed into it, beginning with the letter shown, as in classic illuminated letters. translations are below each image:

"make yourself immortal"

"words and a book and a belief that the world is words"

"i'd tell you all you want to know and more if the sounds i made could be what you hear"

"here is how to handle being a feral prodigy"

"you'll worry less what people think about you when you realize how seldom they actually do"

"how totally banal of you to ask what i really mean"

"look at that fucker dance"

"make yourself immortal"

"carry on, regardless"
