Coded Stories is about our insecurities, the things we hide from not only society, but friends/family/partners. Some of the works include these thoughts that have been translated into morse code, while others are just dots and dashes made in the negative spaces between the lines of paper chatter. I felt that with the history of morse code being utilized for distress signals, there was no better way to put these thoughts into the work. The code that is included in these works is from my life. Some are the little nagging thoughts and stories that have crossed my mind from time to time; while others are direct quotes from other’s I have been intimately aquatinted with. While these thoughts come from my life experience, they are nothing unique, and are likely very common thoughts for many people. I have included carry over elements from my Upheavals and Outbursts series, as it still is appropriate to this work.
