Happy Queensday!

Here we are in Amsterdam, where all has turned orange. Surinamese food, espresso and a walk do wonders for jet-lag.

What does language look like?
I paint sound. I enjoy stripping words of their intended meaning into tones that cause the air to vibrate, resonate and sing. Like deciphering signs in foreign lands. Sometimes I leave a space filled only by primeval sound bites or onomatopoeia; while at other times images arise -the consequence of letters voicing their free will. The absence of meaning and weightlessness of language challenges the manner in which we look at images and how we interpret them.

The more I work with letterforms, the more intrigued I become with the in-between spaces of letters. What is that undefined shape that visually lifts itself off the background but is not a letter? Do the shapes enclosed by a letter or between letters have meaning?   

The letter 'O' is fun to work with, basically it's sort of an oval with another oval shape in the middle, which represents a hole in the bigger oval. I wonder if there's really nothing in the hole or how big this 'nothing' is. Anyway, the whole point of the letter 'O' is that it's kind of a closed system, it's just sitting there and not going (or pointing) anywhere - except to it's center. I've arranged three O's to do just that, together. This image is part of a new series about closed formations or circuits.

Folding Foton III, meant to hang to the wall, appears from a certain view as a cube. But it is not: none of the angles is square, and the form is open. I am making a fool of perspective. But for the same matter the object, made of paper, can be folded up and put away in an envelope.

Sarah Klein

Sarah Klein is a San Francisco Bay Area artist. She is currently exploring low-fi 3-D techniques in a series of stop-motion animations and works on paper. Klein recently exhibited her work at the Institute of Contemporary Art in San Jose, CA, US, De Vishal, Haarlem, NL and the Umami Festival in New York, US.  In 2008 she began the touring curatorial project Stop & Go that features stop-motion works by visual artists and filmmakers. The project is now in a third installment with Stop & Go 3-D

Desire Lines
The term "Desire Lines" comes from landscape architecture, where it refers to the paths people create in response to an intuitive, internal logic, in spite of the imposed directive of the paved sidewalk. Web designers borrowed this term of real-world geography to describe the paths we create for ourselves through the architecture of cyberspace: the search terms that we enter on a website to find what we are looking for. 

I translate the idea of desire lines into my work by manipulating materials to make line in unconventional and unpredictable ways. I establish a predetermined system, then loosen controls on the actual mark making. When making a line indirectly, I consider the difference between a line deliberately made and a desire line that occurs when the materials themselves are allowed to play a role in how it is formed.
