    Hundreds of dots, full stops and bullet points cut out of newspapers, compiled into a single image and stuck to board.
    Collected over months each dot, box or line is as specific as the text from which it was lifted. 
    These clippings fill spaces that hint of much larger spaces.
    The tiny fragments of newsprint establish physical contactwith obscure documents.
    The conspiracy of clippings in Dots 1 and 2 arecharged, battery-like. Here the traffic signals of an erased text kick about, no longer inconspicuous but full of potential.

  • All the dots 2 2007
    The 1997 Labour Manifesto
    This is an AutoCAD file and can be produced at any size.

    In All the dots Alex uses iconic documents as a jump off point. Here information is removed or ignored and the text is reduced to its most basic component, the dot.
    This part erasure is employed in the hope of revealing information rather than obscuring it. 
    The cipher of dots remaining form a trace or map of the original document. Missing words vibrate like dark matter - the finished piece becomes a delicate balancing act shaped by unseen forces.
