Whiteboard, lists

Whiteboard acts as the remnant of a group brainstorming session, the material trace of some obscure and unseen process. Made, rather minimally, of a standard office whiteboard and a dry erase marker, much of the project’s meaning comes from a large, unseen collection of lists. As it was exhibited at Mark Moore Gallery, each day Whiteboard was cleaned and a new list transcribed. The exact reasoning behind the lists is not revealed. And while the guiding rubrics are unknown, as readers review the sequence of words they engage in the creative act of transforming the seemingly arbitrary into an ordered category, or at least guessing what kind of category such a series might fall under.
