Heather Boaz is an artist who lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland. In her work, Boaz focuses attention on the temporal aspect of drawing by videotaping herself performing repetitive acts. Typing with her fingers dipped in charcoal, tapping out Morse code with a pencil, and blowing charcoal dust onto paper are some of the techniques she uses to make videos and drawings. The process in each drawing has a mildly ironic relationship to the content. For example, the word she repeatedly types with her charcoaled fingertips is the password to her hotmail account and the Morse code she taps out is William Burroughs famous “Language is a virus. . .” quote.
