2009 Bookmark Project

Photocopy on Acetate.
As part of the 2009 Book Mark Project in conjunction with the JEwish Book Fair at the Koffler Centre, Toronto.
"Gabriel Graham took a different approach, intervening in the way we read by arbitrarily blacking out blocks of text. Using an old piece of acetate to reference the throw-away nature of information, Graham has chosen to intervene in the reception of knowledge. By blocking out random spaces on the bookmark, the printed page looks like a confidential government document that has been censured for release. This intervention is meant to draw our attention to the way in which our reading has hastened in modern days. By blocking out and haphazardly making words obsolete, the viewer is required to read less and fill in the blanks themselves."
