CHAOS: MFA Thesis
The alphabet and typography are vital parts of communication. Twenty-six letters combined in various ways communicate. But what about making the letters themselves sing? The creation of fine art and design often employ process as a path to inventive experiments. Thus, explorations in studio art processes rooted in science theory, including chance, entropy, and contingency, as manifested in letterform creation, may produce fresh graphic design tools. I suggest activating chaotic processes to offer opportunities for experimental typeface design. 

Processes can become just as important as final design solutions. With a study of the progression of typographic object, image, and tool, a more holistic process may reward artistic creation and design communication. Through chaotic experiments I illustrate the utility of natural chaotic processes in typeface design; these processes can engage designers and excite innovation, ultimately presenting unique letterforms for creative design.
