Who We Are

Personal commission, 2002-ongoing
List of all the ways in which we’ve described ourselves in different contexts.

Owing to bureaucratic necessities and specific contexts, we have described ourselves and been described in a number of ways. We save these descriptions to cut and paste when necessary. Looking at the list one day, revealed something interesting about our aspirations, politics, tone and intentions at various times over the past few years, but more importantly revealed a kind of psychotic stutter, a paranoid repetition stating again and again who we are, laying bare the slippery ground upon which we anchor our identities, which shift seamlessly with the use of a word.
