Twenty Five Hours: Jesse Chun

Jesse Chun’s Twenty Five Hours transforms data on the Brooklyn waterfront and the East River’s tides into into visually engaging works of Concrete Poetry. Chun began the project’s research-intensive process by collecting information from diverse sources including tidal charts and predictions, historical archives, books, websites, and news articles. Using various methods of digital manipulation, erasure, screen printing, painting and drawing, she reinterpreted the found materials into an installation of text-based paintings on canvas, and pigment prints on paper and organza, that considers new translations of place, time, and dwelling.
