1 // ART PROJECT: UNIT 4: 'letters & numbers' (and how meanings can be conveyed through them). having wanted to do a typographical/lettering based art project for a while, when i saw that one of the exam-set titles revolved around letters, i immediately jumped at the chance (and also because i was feeling extremely uninspired by the other options..) i had actually originally wanted to do an abstract project as i have around half the time (8 weeks) i had for the last project even though i have to complete the same amount of work, but maybe i can push this one to something semi-abstract. as of yet (a week in) i have no idea where i'm taking this and i would hugely appreciate any recommendations of artist research i could take a look at.
