"Recorded Expansions of Infinite Things" (2012) is a large screen made of letters printed on silicone. The superimposing printing represents the fictional layering of all possible books written over a long period of time, translated and recorded in a two-dimensional form. History, with all its transitions and possible changes, is translated and frozen into one unique moment, into one single of infinite versions of an ever-changing text. The originally solid and inflexible shapes of the printed letters struggle with the translucence of the material for maintaining their stable form.
