Made for Hompson’s solo exhibition at Bound & Unbound artist’s book gallery. 

Noted for his connection to the Fluxus movement, Hompson often used text in a visual form in posters, pamphlets, artists’ books, mail art and other mediums. His conversational exchanges in large-sized blocky format with verbiage that stood in for the actual image suggest vivid excerpts of language that feel partial or overheard. Equally, his exploration into the meaning and structures attached to language can be seen with his self-appointed artist name which is a transposition of the letters in his name (Born David E. Thompson).
