Two lenticular prints feature variations on Venn diagrams overlaid with diptych images relating to sculptural and theatrical traditions of Ancient Greece. The circular diagrams move and shift as the viewer walks past the prints. The circling shapes of the diagrams seem to suggest a boundary to what we can know or learn - the word ‘enkuklos,’ or encirclement, links etymologically to the word ‘encyclopedia.’ A blank Venn diagram suggests an incomplete or limited form of knowledge, just as copying suggests a form of ongoing seriality that resists final completion. - G.
