Truisms, Living, Blue, Laments, and Arno

Amber Truisms Living and Blue Laments Arno, 2008

Holzer's works reminds us of the traps we fall in as the scrolling texts on the displays describe the frailties of human nature that contribute to the construction of the progress trap. Holzer uses language as a medium to convey messages; the short sentences of her texts express beliefs and biases and remind us that truth is relative.
