HAFNY





























In good company in this quirky math-centric collection curated by HAFNY. Thanks to Jon Feinstein and Roula Seikaly.

‘I'm taken by Robin Cracknell’s alpha-numeric intervention that attempts to quantify a moment of adolescent reverie. Ali Kate Cherkis' composition of three identically dressed Hasidic Jewish girls also thrills me for capturing one of those fleeting moments when discrete elements magically align. And then there’s Paul Berger’s iconic chalkboard scribbles which, made in the analog 1970s, are an eerie premonition to today’s digital data quantifying world’.

3 Years of Subtitle Poetry





























This project is now over. From January 2016 to December 2018, breaking down dialogue from films and manually typing out those fragments and collaging them together has been part of my daily routine. After 400 films, the project has reached its natural conclusion. I ended with the right movie.
