/ Statement from the artist: 

"Selective concordance is a process of organizing and discovering significances in a work, or many works, of writing. It sorts out the frequency of words or phrases, and sheds some light on recurrent themes in a body of work. Frances Stark did this for Emily Dickinson, and I didn’t know the words for it until she said this, but I did it for a collection of text messages.

 

A relationship ends. Or at least, in a way it ends. There’s nothing left of it but memory, impression, sometimes fond feeling, or overwhelming negativity, but a closeness existed for a while. Nothing left, except all the text messages you never deleted from your phone. They’re a record, a ghost, and a factual retelling in fragments of the intimacy between two individuals. Where does intimacy live in language? It’s in the context, because language shifts, words change meaning from moment to day to week to mood and the ‘asshole’ that was said in tenderness could later be a projectile. Where does language live in intimacy? What role does it play, and can I find it in a ghost of a first relationship as it learns and trips on a vocabulary of closeness?" /
