Poster series and close-ups
Concrete, pattern, or shape poetry is an arrangement of linguistic elements in which the typographical effect is more important in conveying meaning than verbal significance. It is sometimes referred to as visual poetry, a term that has now developed a distinct meaning of its own.

This poster series was part of my first research project during my time at Oklahoma State University. I took the liberty to appropriate a quote from Dr. Oliver Sacks. I studied each word and made subtle modifications to unearth deeper emotions and ideas.

Layouts and documentation of creative process

This is the continuation of the Concrete Poem Posters Series. The creative process yielded me to work with found imagery, drawing, and photography. These mediums allowed me to push the boundaries of meaning from the original quote.
