For my final project, I want to continue and expand on what I did for my first project this term, spelling out words and phrases in strange places for people to see and react to. I have chosen a color pallet for the letters and 8 words/phrases that I will be working with. Half will be made in two dimensions with adhesive vinyl to be stuck onto surfaces such as walls and windows. The other half I plan to make three dimensional with a combination of 3D printing the letters and constructing them out of cardboard. The idea for this project is to bring words into physical space, making them real in a way that they normally are not, and to explore the idea of the word as visual art rather than just symbols to represent meaning. For this project, I will present photos of the words/phrases in their environments, as well as hopefully document the reaction to them by member of campus by using social media.
