For this project, I wanted to create panels that reflected the warmth I felt from a curated selection of computer generated phrases. I was fascinated by the way these completely randomly created sentences read like poetry. In the end I found myself grappling with the idea of illustration. How do you convey a sentiment without depicting it literally? This is something I’m still thinking about. The idea of including words in my work appeals to me, but I think it’s a challenging task, and one I have not yet figured out how to approach. That being said, this project was an exciting and lucrative early attempt for me.
