HOAX is a conceptual body of poetry, a tome of disparate but interwoven lyric fragments, sigils, concrete poems, incantations, evocations, objects.
The HOAX Limited Edition Artist’s Set includes “HOAX / DECK” and “HOAX / SCROLL,” created and contained in limited edition archival versions.
The HOAX/DECK consists of a hundred and eight poems, each assigned to a star in the night sky based on cosmological arrangements approximated from several alternative mythical sources and mystical sources involving the number one hundred and eight. Each star is a face, is a sense of essence one assumes.
The DECK is drawn from the MATERIA portion of HOAX, a collection of ekphrastic poems based off Japanese animator and illustrator Yoshitaka Amano’s Tarot Deck. Several poems have been reimagined off the page and laser-cut onto suede leather performance scrolls.
HOAX / SCROLL, presented in a set of three accordion books totaling over ten feet in length, document the artist’s vectorized hand-drawn rota-poems and incantations from and formed of MATERIA.
