'unknown' has been showing up in my work with some frequency.  at first, this disturbed me as i had never seen a ‘roman’ without a name—their tags always had distinguishable numbers. my initial response was to question how i look at things that i have no previous knowledge of.  i realize in retrospect that this thinking was flawed.  as he appears more and more, i realize he has become a sort of symbol for a deeper question of perception.  the only certainty with unknown is the possibility of anything. yipes.
