Description

José Andrés Mora’s work elicits a sense of disconnect that is deeply tied to his experience as a member of the Venezuelan diaspora. In his process, Mora excises written narrative fragments from personal experience, grafting the textual content to digital and physical surfaces, and disconnecting the fragment’s narrative voice from context. He describes this untethered state of his written language as one analogous to his relationship to home and culture.

Please Get Back to Me is part of a series of works titled Misalignments. In Misalignments, Mora uses a subtle shift of tracking (a typographic term for the space between characters in a selection of text) to create a cumulative effect of visual instability within the text. This instability resonates with the out-of-placeness of the words “please get back to me as soon as possible”, amplifying the voice’s emotional tenor. Finally, the repetition and incremental shifts in each line of writing animate the text to untether its footing on the page, aiming to evoke the sensation of disconnect that is alluded to in Mora’s work.
