The Screen Guide

Produced by Ring World as an art work for 'multisoft' (software for multiscreen videos) installations throughout Japan, this tape takes the alphabet as its theme. By addressing the positioning of letters within the alphabet as 'enforced' (or predetermined) edits, it questions the given structure and attempts to exhume or project some of the possible shamanic origins of the shape of the letters in the English version of the Latin alphabet. This alphabet then, as an ambient structure seen in streets, shopping centres and commuter terminals, is intended to lay open the skeleton of English before its symbolic internment, as if to say, 'do with this what you will'.
