“It is part of a series in which I develop methods of work where I am able to compose a poem on a piece of art and lose it in the art simultaneously. In this particular piece, I wrote the poem using lettrasets while rotating the art on a spinning wheel. Evidence of the poem can be seen but impossible to read.”—Truong Tran
