CHAD ARNHOLT

Through newspapers, editorials, tv drama, art, religion, etcetera, we receive waves and repetitions of words, phrases, stories, and pictures. In a way, language is demagogue and the words and images lose meaning with every utterance. When a word becomes iconic, it becomes hollowed out. Freedom, Victory, Terror-- do they still function as words, or have the lost their emotive linguistic capability.

For Event Horizon, I am employing broadsides as mimicry. By repeating words and phrases over and over, the meaning disappears. The letters expose themselves in layers. What is left is aesthetic at best. White noise at worst.
