Binding Cyphers
Daniel Pilkington


The paperclip is a symbol of modern bureaucracy and thus of a disenchanted world. At a time when digitization threatens the general utility of the paperclip, Daniel John Pilkington has discovered an alphabet hidden within. In this exhibition he will use this alphabet to spell out a coded message, a charm against the boredom of administrative spaces, and the spiritless utilitarianism of the modern world.
