First thing a stranger would say when they saw your work: “‘This is ventriloquism of form.’ I interviewed Jo-ey Tang, an artist whose work we love, for the ROLU blog and proposed that rather than asking him my questions, I’d extract questions that were asked of artists in Avalanche, an early-’70s magazine I love. He decided to answer using text from books he loves. He called the exercise a ‘ventriloquism of form,’ and this was as close to perfect in describing our work as anyone has gotten.” Pictured: ROLU as Scott Burton
