An ellipsis of shattered glass and a collection of dead flowers. Inspired by Mihrabs, prayer niches in Islamic Architecture, “DotDotDot” presents the broken windshield from a car accident backlit and framed as a specimen. I'm hoping to create a space which allows for a careful interrogation of the artwork's material history.
I think an ellipsis is used very differently in the advent of texting, tweeting, and phone keyboards. I was thinking about its traditional role, signifying something has been truncated, but I also think about its usage in a text message to denote a heavy pause.
