Joy Drury Cox’s Stranger is another punctuation study that maps out each period in an English translation of Albert Camus’ The Stranger. For the opening of the eponymous exhibition at Workshop @ Christian Berst, Cox revisited the project through a new series of photographic prints. These enlargements, displayed alongside the original drawings, become new translations of each chapter-heading page in the original Camus text. Further removed from the original book, each print becomes a seemingly random combination of points and numbers, playing off the existential themes of the book.
