Close Reading/Live Writing (last edited: 2019)

About this exposition

This 'exposition' is very much a work-in-progress/working process which I will be developing over the next year or so. Close Reading: an ongoing series of investigations by Emma Cocker which applies close visual attention to language, looking at the materiality of words ‘close up’ through processes of visual magnification, microscopic observation. Under scrutiny, text can be pressured into its component parts (of ink and page), the sense or legibility of a word rendered nonsensical the closer it is attended to, as writing slips towards image, as meaning dissipates into pleats and folds. Here, the more language becomes scrutinized the less it becomes known. Live Writing: A not-yet language for reflecting on the not-quite-seen or captured, for remaining faithful to the experience of something glimpsed. In the flick and skim of both writing and reading, words themselves are not always distinguishable as discrete signifying units but instead appear liquid, their sense indeterminate, meaning blurred.
