Typographic Moss

For my honors thesis, I have been exploring typography through the medium of live moss. This series of three public installations on walls in downtown Fayetteville is entitled "Things I am Learning in my Twenties." Each phrase that is grown is moss is taken out of a larger body of work and transplanted into a new context–on a public wall using live moss. By taking these phrases out of the author’s original context, they take on a new life with every human that chooses to interact with it. There is multiplicity in a single statement; each person that interacts with these words reads them through the filter of their personal experiences. In this way, each fragment of thought continues to grow with each person, in the same way that the live moss is growing.
