Matthew Hinçman and Josh Luke are pleased to announce the unveiling of their first collaborative intervention in the series "24kt txt" at the Hallway Gallery in Jamaica Plain, MA. The installation consists of two gilded-text acronyms in the windows of the Hallway Gallery's South Street storefront.
The 24kt txt project investigates the changing nature of contemporary language in the face of new technologies and forms of communication. Representational depictions of common text message shorthand & chat acronyms are rendered in water-glass gilding on glass in display windows throughout the neighborhood of Jamaica Plain, MA. The chosen abbreviations are recursive - text messages referencing language and modes of communication - ulitimately questioning the evolution and future of written and spoken language.
Their second collaborative intervention in the series "24kt txt" has been installed at City Feed in Jamaica Plain, MA. The installation consists of a gilded-text acronym, FITB, in the windows of the City Feed's Seavern Street storefront.
