Beyond Erasure



I was thinking about what was the next stage of erasure texts and/or blank texts. And thought of silent letters and those letters that are not pronounced (eg. the second f in daffodil.) 

So I took Wordsworth's "Daffodils" and erased all the letters and punctuation and physically cut out the silent letters. So silent even the paper can't pronounce them.

The first image is the silent letters marked as black rectangles. The second is the cut-outs. (I accidentally  inverted the image.)
