The Writing Machine
by Moore, Bryan A., M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 9; 1486324
Abstract (Summary)

The Writing Machine is a project experimenting with the boundaries between the art object and the written word as art. Ceramic and wooden objects are used to create "manuscripts" through performing a play of research and action. These objects are prosthesis for the artist, caricaturing the body by making it a cumbersome marionette or other device. The Writing Machine is also represented by a fluid text, a folio scale sketchbook documenting the process and the findings. With this project, I have literally drawn conclusions about the relationship between art objects and writing.
