Project 04

The purpose of this project was the exploration of type as form. The research portion of the project was extensive, and involved the collection and abstraction of found text in the environment. These samples were then used for their formal qualities of value and texture to create an interesting composition. In total, five of these compositions were made, with a focus on balance, hierarchy and variety. The type samples were arranged on a 3x2 grid system, which was deviated from only when it served to enhance the composition. These five works were also made to look like parts of the same system with a narrative thread among them.
