Conceptual Explorations in Physical Typography
With these concepts in mind, I confronted individuals with the questions "What do you know?" and "What do you believe?" Some were individuals that I knew closely (though still without great knowledge of the plausible answers to these questions.) Some answered the questions (via email) as indirect contacts. These questions are purposefully broad and daunting. The very way that different people access the questions reveals their unique mentality and value-system.
The responses are typographically translated into material revelation and declaration. The diversity and delicacy of the responses are reflected in the use of eclectic materials that blur the line between text and object. Type as material is actively manipulated to achieve specific emotional affect and contextualization. Formally, the work revolves around motifs of vulnerability, permanence, ascension,suspension, and disintegration.
