This installation displays the raw form of all the materials that were used in my pieces within the Encrypted Objects series.
Shorthand, a system of transcribing spoken language via rapid handwriting inspired this series of metal sculptures. These have allowed me to give selected words my spatial interpretations between the lengths and curves which define each shorthand, thus activating a gesture in space, a relationship with gravity, and volume. These sculptures carry the essence of selected shorthand symbols while introducing this system to countless dynamic perspectives.
