bla bla bla

bla bla bla is an artist book project which is exhibited as a sound installation along with the artist book. The project consists of a CD case whose back is black and inside is white. The CD case contains a double track recorded CD and its transparent *libretto* CD. On the one surface of the transparent CD, the artist has written an extremely personal text with a white pencil horizontally. On the other surface of the CD, the famous, simply dummy text of printing, Lorem Ipsum, is written with a black pencil in a spiral form, as a loop. The viewer can make use of the CD case and create his/her own choice as in the following: he/she can follow the pattern of the extremely personal text by putting the white-written side of the transparent CD on the black surface of the CD case or – if he/she does not prefer to be involved with the artist’s personal issues he/she can simply leave the transparent CD on which Lorem Ipsum is written with black pencil in a spiral form on the white surface of the CD case.
