AUTOMATIC WRITING arranges photographs of commercial cupcakes to suggest their factory origins. “Index” shows the direct correspondence of icing “text” to its source cupcake; “Codex” presents the text code as a cryptic manuscript page.

Like a photograph, a slice of cinnamon swirl BREAD freezes a single moment from a larger process, revealing hidden imagery and implicate orders. While sometimes merged into larger compositions, the individual swirls have not been altered from their original store-bought forms.
