This project is made from images from their Instagram feed, a project first exhibited at the gallery in 2016. The images explore the space between reading and seeing, how language and image occupy contemporary spaces and how images carry information and may falter in that effort. Myles has occupied social media with language almost since its inception and has let language hang out with image there, in a new mnemonic place of her own making, where everything feels both projected and bodied, substantial, possible and motionful.
