Words

As a visual communicator the idea of language as an abstract concept intrigues me. The English language has so many dialects, idiosyncrasies, accents and colloquialisms it can be completely abstract when spoken. The written word is even more so as we utilize (basically) 26 forms to convey our thoughts and knowledge. Words and phrases change regionally to become their own vernacular. They change meaning over generations and as they go, they often become unrecognizable to those who have gone before or are from other parts of the world – even though they speak the same language. My work seeks to convey this transformation.
