Vulgaris Cognitio, Common Knowledge

Allen West is searching for interverity, a mode of knowledge that is neither true nor false. In musical hard drives, felt books and sentimental herbarium specimens, he uses objective tools and languages such as sound recordings and diagrams to expose faults in the dissemination of scientific knowledge. His current body of work, spectrogram weavings of birdsong, questions what it means to know a thing and why there is a nature/culture divide.
