Central to my art is an ongoing fascination with the limitations and potential of the written and spoken word. Often referencing poetry, myths and nature, much of my recent work originates from spoken words that are transformed into the visual and physical. My interest is in exploring what may be lost or found in translation from auditory to visual perception in the context of how we perceive our world.
Floating Poem is created using a Voice Font. Voice Font is a typeface I invented made from the spoken alphabet. The shape that each letter of the alphabet takes is created from the sound band generated from the speaking of the letter.
