The work is composed of two parts. The first is a series of 17 16x20 photographs which examine the quality of information photographs provide. The second body parallels the first, but reverses its means, beginning with words and ending visually.
Both pieces are reductive. The first finds the elementary, indi monads of visual information to be (in the instance of photography, a medium with an exaggerated ability to provide information) the particle of the grain. The second reduces the meaning of the word to the letters which constitute them, and the act of writing them.
