Deconstructing + Combining
“Learning how to think really means…being conscious and aware enough to choose what you pay attention to and to choose how you construct meaning from experience.”
—David Foster Wallace
I explore and push what design can be and do. Exploring the potential surprising effects of randomness and chance within structured operations, I collected the top image and corresponding headline from 12 different news sources on a daily basis for the month of March. There are two parts of my project. Book: Each turn of the page triggers a random shuffling of images and corresponding headlines, after which the shuffling stops and two are combined. Cards: I combined the images using projections and long-exposure photography; the headlines are spliced together while maintaining the word sequence of each headline. Combining two to create a new whole invites you to further deconstruct elements of the image, and words of the headline, as you try to make sense of their merging.
