'Speak / Scroll / Spread' is a trio of visual pieces collating concerns with the spread of Coronavirus and misinformation. The pieces attempt to draw parallels between the infection nature of post-truth doctrine and the current world health crisis, ultimately drawing attention to our inaction towards the unseen pandemic, post-truth.
Pottery, like poetry, requires planning, execution and finesse. Plenty of opportunity to go wrong. 'Vase' draws on the visual and on Platonic philosophy to offer a meta-poetic self-criticism, while compelling a confluence of plan and execution. It almost serves as an ironic defeatist mantra - think I Will Create No More Boring Art but it's boring.
