While setting up my studio, I realized just how much I actually did in the last month of “research” in mapping back an origin point. I completed a 94 page mind-map book, began experimenting with the El Wire signs and writing ideas, created the first of many coded images, realized some of my writing in braille form thanks to touchsee.me, and have a timeline that won’t fit on my wall because it’s too damn long (and I still have like 18 years to add to shit this book is intense). Words, codes, systems of understanding and storytelling. I thought maybe if I could get all the words out of me, I would get back to the beginning. Turns out words are my beginning.
