RAW:Re:Definition

Local artist Eric Lesage is deconstructing the English lexicon and reformatting it as a spatial eddy. Inspired by Marshall McLuhan’s statements on media, Re: Definition was borne of a simple question, what would happen if text were woven? By weaving strips of printed and non-printed paper from the 1956 Webster’s Encyclopedic Dictionary, Lesage creates astonishing panels each investigating a new potential in both composition as well as material condition. Each new 50.8 cm x 152.4 cm (20” x 60”) panel is hung in a radiating spatial pattern, expanding like the propagation of radio waves outwards from the centre.
