About this piece:
Meditation on part of a 12-th century letter from Héloïse to Abelard: “What cannot letters inspire? They have souls; they can speak; they have in them all that force which expresses the transports of the heart; they have all the fire of our passions.” The glinting, gestural alphabets were made to express the fire and inspiration that letters have held for me.
