Untitled (Remembered), 2014, framed ink-jet print, 24 x 31.5 inches (61 x 80 cm). Perhaps the domestic equivalent of Words With Ruscha, Untitled (Remembered) presents a text on methodologies and typologies of remembering among piles of books and a wide range of ephemera that range from a vintage postcard of a statue of Mercury in repose to a still of Monica Vitti in L’ avventura.

Words With Ruscha, 2014, two framed ink-jet prints, 50 x 40 inches (127 x 100 cm) each. Two photographs with differing perspective of the same museum-like introductory wall text for a fictitious Ed Ruscha retro-spective based chiefly around ideas of banality and boredom.
