Personal Writing System Works

Gestural works comprised completely of text in my loose handwriting, with letters from one inch to five feet high. With five words to over a thousand words, some are cohesive narratives and arguments; some are studies for other works. I capture the language and ideas that come into my head and then sometimes I experiment with them over multiple layers (in one work) or in multiple works.
