Essay by Drew Daniel for Terence Hannum's exhibition "Decay" at GUEST SPOT (Baltimore, MD)

“Like the barren mountains of e-waste or the ship-breaking yards of Chittagong, Hannum’s studio is a place where commodities go to die. But in an alchemical act of “nigredo” in which there is a generatione ex putrefactio, the waste matter of the now-dead commodity becomes re-born as art. In a familiar allegory of the move from the baroque to modernity, the smooth clarity of abstraction is achieved through the redaction of content, the reduction of information, and the foregrounding of the material surface.”

Drew Daniel, Where Even the Darkness Is Something to See: Regarding Terence Hannum {excerpt}

Drew Daniel is an Associate Professor at Johns Hopkins University and member of the experimental electronic music duo Matmos.
