MAPPINGS – Each of the 12 panels has as its underlying template the alphabet, printed in light gray. Overlaid black lines connect letters, stringing them together as in connect-the-dots to spell out phrases which begin and end with the same letter: Global Warming, Mapping Room, Glass Ceiling, Murder Victim, Cul de Sac, Memory of a Dream, Dazed and Confused, Why Is Butter Yellow, Lonely Street Heartbreak Hotel, Ocupado, Yesterday, and Stream of Consciousness. A small golden circle directs the reader to the beginning and end point of the word or phrase. The visual result is an abstract closed-circuit system that relates in some way to the meaning of the phrase.
