Within the Writing, Rhetoric, and American Cultures department, there is a large focus on the fact that words are a part of active, living documents. However, artist Ebon Heath has given that phrase a new definition with his latest typographical sculptures. His intentions are to “create a visual experience for the viewer in which they typography and the natural motions combine to tell the same expressive story.” Using laser-cut letters, he creates physical sculptures of letters and words. Heath says, “I want our typography to jump, scream, whisper, and dance, versus lay flat, dead and dormant, to be used and discarded with no concern for its intricate beauty of form, function, and meaning.”
