This exhibition is presented by the artist Tyler Santiago. Tyler Santiago was born and raised in Ozone Park, New York and still resides there and studies at New York City College of technology. Santiago got the inspiration from Tom Phillips re creation of a book called the Human Document but Phillips called it “The Humument”. Santiago’s title “essence come from part of the actual book he used which was a book written by Tillie Olsen called Silences. Santiago took the word Silences and jumbled up the words to create his title. Santiago made this book into his own creation based on what he learned in his classes Eng1101 and COMD1100. His concepts come from stuff like negative and positive space and juxtaposition the overlapping of something. Santiago used basic materials like rulers, black inking pens, and black inking brush. The first piece of work of Santiago’s book is called “silences” which shows negative and positive space and has a obvious focus point with the circled word silences. The second page that has all the word blacked out except the word “of” is called “isolation”. On the third page is called “Geometry” which shows negative and positive space and it shows geometric shape with a focus point where the word Literature is, and the first 3 pages are suppose to go together. The next page is called “The Beat” which represents a sound wave, which shows staccato. The next page titled “Flakes” which represents variety in size. The next page called “Swirls” represents a pattern of legato movement. On the next page is a piece call “Swoosh” are a bunch of line and in this piece it shows movement, And on the last page Santiago wanted to show what he learned in ENG1101 of Juxtaposition, this piece of work is call “New York”.
