At the origin of the lexicon lies a simple task: to fill the blank white page until it is black. For each new attempt, each new chapter, a single rule is set. Chapter after chapter is added, slowly creating an infinite lexicon of all possible ways of performing the given task. The blank page is the starting point of all artistic work, and here it becomes as much the object as the subject of the piece. It constitutes a conceptual framework in which to reflect on any kind of artistic expression. Its procedural nature questions our ability to translate creative thought into written rules and, as such, investigates the relationship between art and language.
