Words exist materially and immaterially.
Written; physical ink adorns the pre-action blankness of the beige page.
Spoken words also contain a material presence, acting as a form of temporary jewellery adorning our bodies.
These spoken words exist in the shift of exhaled sound waves.
Carbon dioxide and the movement of oxygen and hydrogen molecules.
Here, the spoken word is materially and temporarily a decorative concern.
Beige consists of a spoken performance recounting experiences of beige accompanied by a sketchbook of notations on the anti-humanness of beige.
