Wherever the mushrooms
My body of work was created while exploring the union between written words and visual imagery.
This idea stemmed from my childhood interest in reading comics and graphic novels because of how the visuals amplified the text. The relationship between visual and oral language is something that we take for granted. When we see messages accompanied by an image, we process both as one and instantly, visually. Only afterward do we, as viewer, attempt to understand and deconstruct what is in front of us. The effect both elements have when deliberately placed together, gives the presentation an entirely alternate meaning.
