Writing Lines, A Labor of Love
paper, archival pen and highlighter, wooden frames
2022-ongoing
A handwritten data visualation, I wrote and highlighted Kindle Popular Highlights from romance novels the number of times they were anonymously highlighted. Some pieces had as few as 4 highlighters and the page was mostly empty all the way to where I wrote and highlighted the same highlight 1158 times, which took 10 full 22x30" pages. Each time I wrote the highlight, I imagined what the person who highlighted it might have been feeling.
