Torrent is a series of cryptographic writings connected to form nine scrolls. The drawings are an architectural transcription of words that are never meant to be decoded by the viewer, or even read later by the artist. Instead, the arrangement of shapes becomes its own visual language of lines and spaces. A turbulent outpouring for the creator is translated into a contained record for the viewer – a map of the internal landscape, of what was told and yet remains concealed, or simply a pattern made of words written in code.
