Way of Words, No.1, “Lose your mind so you have something to find.”
- David Fried
2008, archival C-print, 21 x 24 cm. edition 8

"Way of Words" is a series of 15 images - or "Motiongrams" captured with long exposures of Fried's "SOS" sound stimulated sculptures reacting and moving in real-time to the artist's spoken words. As information informs matter, each motiongram contains the message it heard, resulting in unique calligraphic symbols in a highly probabalistic language. The actual quote the SOS heard is the subtitle of each image.
