Most of my projects are accompanied by graphic pieces, works on paper, whether drawn, printed, or projected. Drawing writing is a complementary aspect of my texts, and visual series have been featured in my books. Text murals exist as temporary pieces adapted to each context and site.
Drawings are tools for release and composition. They are moments of sketching that often initiate new processes of thinking during a larger project, be it a writing project, a voice piece, or an installation. They have the advantage that they work with the gesture of writing from the point of view of its material production, its utterance. Because the moment of execution is as definitive as a voicing in performance, there is a strong energy of concentration involved. I use this energy as much as the resulting drawing to accompany some of the methodological directions of a project.
