Present Progressive

A deconstructed quote from Jose Esteban Munoz book Cruising Utopia is hand written a using an ink brush soaked in water. Munoz’s text (“I turn to the past as an effort to imagine the future”) is re-written with the words Past and Future swapped, to suggest an unbreakable bond between times.
By the time the writing task ends, half of the words had already faded away and traces of water are left on the paper, leaving it blank as it was before the writing process began.

The integration of language and sound serves to provoke questions concerning the manipulative process that is used in educational systems to implement ideology. In a full version of the work, the sentence is being written repeatedly for 100 minutes, until the paper fails to soak the water.
