Too Much (text)

Google search books:

Searching for an image using a keyword, the search engine pulls up bits of phrases found in the title or content of a web page. In the thumbnail display of the results, these phrases tumble one into another. I considered this phenomenon, how a particular arrangement of words facilitates or hinders communication and experimented with other situations. The content of this series of books are fragmented statements gathered during various Internet image searches. Resembling the fumbling nature of Internet research, these fragments are spliced together forming awkward sentences and phrases, creating an irregular, oddly poetic, narrative.

2009     5"x5"x3/4"    screen printed, hand bound book

The text reads:

Too much tenderness, too much happiness. Too much room for too much love. You knew too much too much to see, it’s all too much in my world too. It’s all too, too much for me.
