talk like squares, dance like circles

talk like squares, dance like circles

inspired by the visual connection
between circles and madness
in charlie chaplin’s ‘modern times’.

decided to create a composition
with thousands of tiny circles

to explore the idea of madness
through a process of putting down
thousands of little dots
by hand.

in making this composition i discovered that
a maddening process does not yield madness,

instead it

feels like a footprint
of something come and gone,
of something having lived and left

like madness is eerie
and we can’t touch it.
