Thesis Title: Blank␣Space: A Site of Process, Interaction, and Possibility.

Examining how blank space can represent the irrepresentable – that which resists linguistic expression – my thesis investigates the interplay between text and blank space as a means of communicating various ineffabilities and unknowns.
20th- and 21st-century literature
Experimental writing practices
The visual arts
