What is it?
“Blurred Words” shows a series of three-line poems, which resemble “word ladders” of slowly transitioning words. These writings reflect on social media and the internet, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the ever-increasing pressure to present a persona online.
Its LCD screen is set in a custom-milled barnwood frame—the product of a milling mishap. The wood frame of “Blurred Words” is stabilized with acid-free PVA. Its supporting custom circuitry is concealed in recesses on the back.
“Blurred Words” should be installed at eyeline, as its LCD becomes difficult to read off-axis (vertically speaking).
Its electric-blue LCD is a very bright, saturated blue, which is not fully reflected in the video shown here.
