What I am presenting are some attempts to investigate the gap, void in concurrency with the physicality and temporality and at the same time dislocate language and words as we embody them. The object here becomes an extension of the hand, of the utterance, the image, but neither the line nor the matter is certain. By using Ugaritic script (an extinct Northwest Semitic language) as a template for form (which I used before in Disappearance of the world resemblance of the object- 1-10), this marginal historic language that is dead as a verbal and written language has here been used as a revisit and to deface the image surface as a returning flicker in a quite rudimentary way.Maybe it looks like a sentence but it is no(n)sense. The repetition of form creates an implied sound/noise and the objects in front of you are made unsustainable.The Silver leaf on drying clay as a form alike the simplified versions of Ugaritic script, like the flicker superimposed on top of the video. You find graphite powder as an extrusion of the same shape, and a shaped pile of sand as an extension of the defecation on the footage. The video footage is a process of revealing two surfaces by the removal enacted by hand movement and water in a repetitive gestural manner until what is needed to be exposed is.
