Stephen Mueller – Please Don’t Go
Ritualistically transcribing and reorganizing Braille text within the confines of a mirrored glass display case, Stephen G. A. Mueller explores the relationships between fear, loss, regret, obsession and futility, through an unabashed representation of daily struggles with an uncooperative mind. Please Don’t Go is, at once, an exercise in self-involved psychoanalysis, a living cenotaph, a time machine and, above all, a reason for trying.
