Many artworks are named 'Untitled' by the artist in an effort to let the artwork 'speak for itself'. With this view a title contaminates and interrupts the experience. Although titles for art and music began to be formally used with the advent of museums, galleries, concert halls, and the common ownership of artworks, they have been a way to frame a song, dance, story, or drama for thousands of years.

I consider the title of those things I make as much the substance of an artwork as its more obvious medium of light or sound. Despite my love of movement, colour, tone, texture, and form, meaning has the most potential to affect lasting and positive change.

The naming of something is important.

The word 'Untitled' identifies an artwork through a side door, and informs me that considered thought is likely not its strength, intention, nor consequence.
