A Poster Installation Series Inspired By Classic Literature


By readapting phrases pulled from a wide variety of classic novels into an ongoing series of poster installations, I explore the intimate, yet infinite interpretations of these words based on where they’re seen and who they’re seen by.

This concept of “who picks what” speaks to the mind of the reader, the thoughts that interest them, and the answers they may be seeking. With this disguise of telling information comes opportunity – allowing the mind to choose, rather than the eyes. I imagine these ten renditions to be the first few of an ongoing series that will continue to expand through layers of time, subject, and author representation.
