The Boggle Project

Subjects are asked to shake a Boggle game, randomizing the letters. I photographically document them with their letter matrix. Afterward, I strictly follow the rules of the game to find as many words possible.  From this limited lexicon I construct the first person commentaries that accompany the images.  This project started with my daughters.  Note:  Fate is my collaborator and nemisis.  Subjects shake the Boggle only once. I work with what I get.  

In many respects the Boggle series is a serendipitous enterprise, a series of simple experiments designed to test my skill at postnogstication, the rather common but non-the-less uncanny ability to foretell the past.  As unremarkable as this skill might sound, it is in fact quite handy.  Generally we call this competence “interpretation” using this linguistic ability to postdict  the past thereby forecasting the present.  Prior to the saying (pre-dict), the past is a  series of physical exigencies set in motion by more or less random events .  We narrate and analyze these incidents and occurrences molding them,  (fore-cast),  providing them with meaning and giving shape to the present. The present is a fragile porcelain image that language sculpts from the raw clay of past experiences.
