Logograms was a project about the evolution of typography in a digital age. I was inspired by the evolution of asian logographic systems as well as the evolution of alphabet systems transforming into emojis.

I came up with a list of 100 words consisting of adjectives, verbs, and nouns that every society needs to know. These words were drawn out in ink and then digitally rendered. I set a timer for 15 seconds for each drawing because I wanted to draw the first thing that came to my mind when I thought of the words. For the installation organized each character on the grid by shape and complexity.

The project also ended up being an investigation of how culture and region affect visuals. My visual for “eating” closely resembles a plate with utensils on either side, a visual that not all of the world shares.
