In this project, imagery of electromagnetism is juxtaposed with a visualization of a text about the phenomenon. Radiating waves and concentric ovals link the two projects, suggesting links between the physical world and the way we talk about it.
These prints are inspired by Johann Bayer's 1603 Uranometria, the star atlas that is the source of the nomenclature we still use to name stars today. The project reconstitutes the sounds found in a list of star names into constellations of vowels and consonants.
Each of these works represents an exemplar sentence used in linguistic research. They reference Reed-Kellogg sentence diagrams, but also other visual systems of organization. By using sentences chosen by researchers because they typify some phenomenon, these prints investigate ways of representing representative sentences of English.
