Finalist, 2012 Marrickville Contemporary Art Prize, September 2012

The noughts and ones are exhausted from the arduous business of representing worthless value.
They want to play, to do something important, to reveal something beautiful.
So I let them.
And once again I find the manumission of the ubiquitous becomes an act of self discovery [fully sic].
Who knew?
Warning: may contain irony.
