Gauging Tone

Gauging Tone (2013)

When an aesthetic is inverted, does the meaning stay the same? 

"The series Gauging Tone employs the same black board [as in the series, Come Closer], but instead of black ink, Odutola uses a metallic Sharpie to cast lines and fill the negative space. Odutola questions the inversion of her own aesthetic and in doing so looks upon the equally problematic proposition of how black people see one another." JSG
