Artist Statement:


Wordscapes is about connections, starlight, and cityscapes. Drawn from the Gettysburg Project books from the 1900’s, we lift the words into a sea of stars. Topical and resonating words are connected by their occurrence, use, and frequency, each a different, vibrant colour. Same words form a stack of skyscrapers at the bottom of the image, representing the cityscape of all words in the book. Each image is unique for the book it is drawn from, injecting a certain emotion and meaning.
