ellipsis journal (2014 - present)




ellipsis journal is an encyclopaedic project in collaboration with Kimberly Shen that focuses on ideas that may normally be omitted or unheard. Celebrating the unusual, the journal encouraged taking a new approach to old ideas. By using one letter per issue as a theme, we hoped to open up a discourse of multiple ideas and voices. One of few submission criteria was for work to be able to be reproduced in a print-based format.

Issue A (2014)
The inaugural issue of ellipsis focused on the letter A. The journal featured a music score written for cello using ‘A’ as its starting point, an exploration in typography and language and video work that rethinks the notion of Anticlockwise. Absurdity is channelled through the act of painting and sculpture is embraced through Alchemy.
