When an object is removed from its familiar state and re-contextualized, our mind allows us the freedom to re-examine and approach the object in ways we may not have imagined.
It can be difficult to remove some things — particularly text — from their context without completely losing the meaning. However, if individual letterforms are removed, re-imagined, and then fed back into their previous context, is the original meaning lost and a new interpretation created? Is the essence of the original context still relevant?
Using letterforms as my subject, I’ve taken them through a series of processes using laser light, and moving back and forth between video, two, and three dimensions in an attempt to re-contextualize and re-interpret these letterforms.
