Marginalia is defined as annotations on the pages of printed and published texts or the embellishments of illuminated manuscripts. This exhibit expands the term to include a third definition, the images and non images which inhabit the margins of a note taker’s page. The concept for this exhibition sprung from a fascination with explicit an implicit connections between images and notations as well as between notations and spontaneous pictorial additions. It explores the relationship between the subject of attention and the constant commentary of a personal stream of consciousness that cannot be shut off. The margins of the page reflect the margins of consciousness, a flickering of the corner of the eye just beyond the object of concentration.
