Fluid Nonsense

Objective: To communicate and question the relationships between type, tone, paper, image & fold

Form: Artist Book Design & Imagemaking
Fluid: a person, thing or situation that moves or changes easily.
Nonsense: nonsense is often caused by an excess of meaning, rather than a lack of it.

I did a bit of a deep dive into words I’ve written at peculiar hours of the “night,” and set out to explore some questions of mine. Once published, words and images in a newspaper are set. Their word for the day is permanent, though mine is ever-changing, rearranging. What is the conversation between tone and tone? Paper and fold? Type and image? Delicate and ridgid? You and me?

Will you let them breathe?
