Words consist of lots of individual Somethings: letters. The letters of a single word or sentence can be torn apart and rearranged to create new words and sentences.
A certain combination of letters, that may be a well known sentence, can form a whole new meaning, an alter ego of its original sentence, even though they’re technically still the same old letters as before.
The wax melts and deforms, becomes another Something. At the same time, it leaves behind an altered solid part. The shapes that the liquid wax drops take are determined by gravity.
These projects are part of my diploma thesis „Annäherung an ein Alter Ego“/“Approaching the Alter Ego”. 13 individual pieces of work all share the same principle, seeking to translate the essence of an alter ego into graphic design.
