Justin Hunter Allen and Lucy Kirkman curate the entirety of Applefaces as a way to examine the dichotomy of how an artwork is ‘seen’ and how it is ‘read.’ Ultimately it begs the question, “Is art a language?” Does it operate in a way similar to hieroglyphics such as many untranslatable relics of ancient Meso-American carvings? Or is it more used as symbols that form a concrete image the way that ASCII-art does?
