Katarzyna Krakowiak: Shorthand
5.5 × 8.5 in.
Toner prints on multiple paper stocks, saddle-stitched
Edition of 20, signed and numbered
For the exhibition Possibility 02: Growth, Katarzyna Krakowiak cloistered herself during off-hours to a concealed closet in the exhibition space, in order to record a multi-hour audio track that was later amplified and enhanced for human transcription. An onomatopoetic text generated from this recording presents the successive appearance and frequencies of multiple phenomena with the whirr of white noise as a continuous whisper. Reading as if a script for oration or a score for performance, one particular minute of silence of P! becomes actionable. The publication includes a short essay by curator Prem Krishnamurthy.
