Project Passion Exhibition: 1 – 17 February 2016
Conkling Gallery, Nelson Hall, Minnesota State University, Mankato

This project explores the impact of language as an assault through typography. The letters have been hand cut out on paper, digitally photographed and arranged in an illegible manner as to evoke the illogical nature of unwanted text messages, voice mails and emails. This work seeks to highlight the inherently private and controlling exchange manufactured by stalking behavior and to raise awareness of psychological abuse incurred through continued and unwanted contact.
