Syllabary, 2013 represents the ultimate colonization and peak refinement of once finger-painted symbols in ecstatic performance and ancient archetypal possession rituals, as well as autohypnosis. Now the language has been completely codified, unified, and homogenized in order to propagate ultimate trust, however thinly veiled it may be as one-sided colonialist control. Matt Mullican’s process and craftsmanship serve as an important point of contemporary contextualization for this piece in particular.
