“Do you know how beautiful words are…” begins the hanging scroll, Do You Know. There is magic in how lines are combined to make letters that become words to tell us what we cannot see, to tell our stories and beliefs. Our different languages, different codes can be translated into words we can understand. Do You Know was hand lettered on translucent, painted polyester to give the look of a palimpsest with text and brush marks slightly visible underneath, words ready to be read again. The binary code is our newest use of lines to communicate. The scroll has text about language by various authors and myself.
The scroll is mounted on book cloth covered tubes with an embedded, braided linen hanging cord to hang from one point. The scroll rolls for storage in a paper covered box. There is a printed text of words in the scroll.
