This pamphlet book uses two marks on paper to reflect on two impulses in art and life. The punctuation mark on the left page represents the finality and beauty of a perfect statement, the punctuation mark on the right page breaks up the perfect statement and points to further movement. In parallel to the close of Samuel Beckett’s The Unnamable: “I can’t go on, I’ll go on.”
