The 'Event' series of works explores the idea of collected moments coming together to form an event. In this instance the artist is playing the moment just before an author writes out the first words of a book, in this case "The Old Curiosity Shop" by Charles Dickens.The letters from the first 10 words of the book are applied to various balls in the composition making the viewer engage and search in the same way the author had to search the words in the first place.
