Movement symptomatically connects both elementary aspects of this installation while translating transitory time to meaning as History.

A study into the tension of narrative its usage of [text] and [image], BLIND DATE positioned a collection of images assembled into a loose collage and a collection of texts from various languages that only becomes activated as moved through and along the axis of the wall.
The autonomy and exclusion of language counteracts the easily accessible pictorial element of this collage. Methods of assemblage and collage simultaneously convey original meaning as much as they distort and re-interpret History by building a new architecture of semiotic connections.
Controlling the influx of historical sources as visual triggers, the pictorial collage acts as bond with the past as much as it portraits visions of a future that is incorporating parts where others are forgotten.
