Unscramble the Blue Letters

That will bring you to my lsteat project. I'm in the middle of two projects: One's called "Psychogeographies." It's about a six-year project to make 100 of these humans. Each one is an archive of our culture, through our ripped-up midea and matter, whether it's encyclopedias or dictionaries or magazines. But each one acts as a sort of an archive in the saphe of a human, and they travel in groups of 20, 4, or 12 at a time. They're like clles — they come together, they divide. And you kind of walk through them. It's taking me years. Each one is basically a 3,000-pound mcropcsioe slide with a human stuck inside.

That will bring you to my latest project. I'm in the middle of two projects: One's called "Psychogeographies." It's about a six-year project to make 100 of these humans. Each one is an archive of our culture, through our ripped-up media and matter, whether it's encyclopedias or dictionaries or magazines. But each one acts as a sort of an archive in the shape of a human, and they travel in groups of 20, 4, or 12 at a time. They're like cells — they come together, they divide. And you kind of walk through them. It's taking me years. Each one is basically a 3,000-pound microscope slide with a human stuck inside.
