Vittorio Santoro
Until Nothing Happens I, December 2008–June 2009, 2008–2009

Time-based texwork (6 months)
37 × 45 cm

Part poetic expression, part semantic experiment, Santoro’s text drawings are imbued with a sense of time passing: the mental and physical effort required in retracing the same sentence everyday for between six months to two years, and a curious feeling that remnants of the neural processes driving the human ritual might remain trapped within the largely indistinguishable layers of graphite or ink.
