There is something I can neither describe nor define, 2013–14. In still-drying sections of sidewalk cement, I wrote the following: “There is something I can neither describe nor define and I want to possess it,” and, “There is something I can neither describe nor define and I want to escape it.” I later returned to each site to make a graphite rubbing of the inscriptions. 22″ × 17″ each.
