'Ghosting Series: Hidden Words' explores movement and language with the techniques and science of printmaking. 'Hidden Words #2' experiments more with the concepts, colors, and transparencies of the materials; weaving the visible and invisible of the Ghosting technique created by master Dokins.
The calligraphy over and under-lays in between each other, finely registered so the viewers eye can move through the piece seamlessly. To experience the piece in full, the interaction of the viewer and the piece reveals hidden layers from different perspectives and reflections of light. It is the interaction between the viewer and the piece is what brings each piece to life.
Ghosting Series "It addresses the notion of 'phantasmagory' of the late eighteenth century, a series of optical illusions that referred to horror. If we think of contemporary society, phantasmagoria would appear as that hidden aspect of the illusion of progress. It seems that history teaches us that there is no way to repair the ruins that we are leaving through time and that concealment, that denial of the remains is what appear in reality in the form of a ghost." -Said Dokins-
