These explorations are, obviously, inspired by Easter, most notably the brightly colored jelly beans so often enjoyed this time of year. With these compositions, I was exploring not only how a build-up of individual pieces affects the whole, but also how color comes into play and affects our perceptions of a piece.
For my last project of the semester, I wanted to venture more directly into the world of typography, and make the letterforms the focus more than the materials. I chose to create an alphabet, with each letter corresponding to both a typeface and a type of food, in order to more directly study the effects food has on typography. The end result is a diverse set of letters, stemming from both their parent typeface and the unique materials/techniques used to make them.
