Each sheet is made up of overlaying layers of notes taken by hand while I attempt to acquire some language-related knowledge. Topics range from language history, sociolingustics, poetry, to natural language processing.

Taking handwritten notes is supposed to improve the brain's encoding process and aid memory; yet overwriting layers render the words illegible. What have I learned, what do I remember?
The pens used for this work have been lying around in my stationery box for years, waiting to be used. The end of the series is dictated by the number
of sheets on the drawing pad which I used for the work. The work can be shown in any constellation, orientation, or order.
