PAUL PRUDENCE | BERLIN
EXPANDED. ART is delighted to present TEXT.ILE by Paul Prudence, his first long-form generative artwork, at the Showroom in Berlin. The digital release will utilize Highlight.xyz’s newest long-form generative integration via Worlds on Foundation.
TEXT.ILE follows as a natural development of his work created on a standard mechanical typewriter, mimicking generative processes in order to create patterns with text. Prudence takes cues from concrete poetry and from his original vocation as a textile designer.
The metaphorical link between writing and textiles has a long tradition. We talk of weaving a yarn or embroidering a tale. If all writing is a kind of 'pattern making of meaning' derived from the fabric of language, then TEXT.ILE extends this concept in another direction by weaving decorative patterns from letters and glyphs.
The NFTs are available on Foundation.
