Spanning over 49′ sq.–nearly 5x the size of the original–this is the world’s largest wall-mounted Scrabble game. One of only nine in existence, it is handmade by John Kahn, renowned mixed media artist and creator of colossal pop art. Meticulously constructed from Russian birch plywood, the 3/4″-deep back board is overlaid with the classic purple-hued background of the original game, laminated with a .023-gauge galvanized steel sheet, and covered by a heavy vinyl print of the playing board which is protected by a satin laminate. Bordered by a 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ birch frame that wraps from the front to the back, the board attaches to a wall with included hardware. The two 6′ H x 5 5/8″ W x 7″ D birch tile racks are grooved and lined with felt, each accepting 50 of the included 100 tiles. Made from a 3/8″ x 5/16″ rare earth magnet sandwiched between two pieces of birch plywood, each 4 3/8″ sq. x 3/8″ thick tile’s letter is sandblasted to a depth of 1/64″, lacquered in black, sanded, and clear-coated to a finish that will last for generations.

Digital Disruptions is a series of still images illustrating liminal spaces between converging digital worlds. As printed images this work seeks to transport viewers to another world existing in another space and time by presenting the transference of various digital media: video, television, computer and finally materialized through photography form. The brain struggles to make sense of these digital anomalies and abstractions presented in a familiar mode of representation. By disrupting the digital code and constant stream of digital imagery pervading our everyday lives, these images allow for quiet reflection and contemplation on the convergence of media now commonplace in modern society.
