Monotypes (unique prints on paper) produced using commercial window screen. Multiple grid patterns are intentionally overlaid with slight alignment deviations. The resulting interference patterns create the effects of light and shadow.
In mathematics, long division is a method for breaking a large problem into smaller parts. These fragments accumulate into a whole — like an image resolving out of a blank screen, one pixel at a time. Long division is slow. It is slow and repetitive. When calculations are too large to complete in the mind, long division offers a step-by-step algorithm for working out a solution on paper. It is a writing practice, a form of drawing. This ritualized procedure grounds one’s inquiry into the unknown. It is a process-based way of understanding. Thus, long division can be thought of like a spell or a prayer: a choreography of gestures that is as much about the methodology as the result.
