Project 4 – Constrained Systems
At the beginning of Project 4, each student was given two words. My words were Energetic and Destruction.
For the first part of the project, we were instructed to define our words, brainstorm the connotations and find images as examples.
Energetic: Showing or involving great activity or vitality.
Destruction: the action or process of causing so much damage to something that it no longer exists or cannot be repaired.
During the second part of the project we were introduced to the idea of modular fonts. We got to choose between circles and squares. I decided to do my project using squares. Then we made thumbnail sketches with the intent to use the modular forms to portray our words.
My thumbnail sketches will be scanned after I get my Process Work back.
When working on this project I found it helpful to look up some modular type on the Internet. Here are some of my favorite images I found:
My final project looked like this:
