e-PERMANENT presents Oracle bones, a new work by artist Ruth Höflich. Oracle bones is a four-part video and text-based work created for online space, taking as its structure an archetypal alphabet composed of the four natural elements. Inspired by oral cultures and non-written forms of storytelling the work aims to explore the relationship of language to thought and territory. With this work Ruth Höflich will continue her ongoing interest in perception and how signs and patterns affect the parameters of what is seen and experienced.
Each of the four videos which comprise Oracle bones will be released one per month until the end of the exhibition. oracle-bones.e-permanent.org
