Artist Statement:

This book reflects linguistic patterns found in a piece of ordinary conversation between two persons. The dialogue was input to the computer and broken down co-indexing sounds, grammatical usage, and meaning. Each page stresses a distinct formal level of the same dialogue through typographic treatment. The reader builds up meaning through the simultaneous experience of those visual/verbal levels.
