THE

WELCOME TO A VISUAL JOURNEY

JOSEPH


As a facet to Gutenberg’s movable type in the fifteenth century, this numeric series explores the printed page as an aesthetic stimulant in contemporary times. By superimposing visual elements into the numeric language - like shapes, outlines or patterns, this reinforces the aesthetic complement for a linguistic message, creating interferences that could not be realized in any other way. These numeric juxtapositions and spatial compositions form this numeric linguistic message.

In the abstract structural forms present in these works, a modern language of number sequencing seems to emerge from coded patterns of identifiable scripts. These scripts, only visually tangible in sequential and non sequential order, seemingly lead to a 
mysterious conclusion with a restored visual dimension to the printed numerical.  

Assembly Methodology & Materials: 

•Conceptualized with 3D vector design in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop including superimposed photographic and hand generated elements. 

•Structural Matrix fabricated from various 
interlocking wood and plastic parts.

•Printmedia created using both digital large format print and offset lithography - including found then modified printed matter.

•This particular work also employs mixed media elements such as plastic, aluminum, copper and steel.
