Life/Material/Status
BACKGROUND:
The design inspiration comes from the poem “The River of Life” by Thomas Campbell. Life, River, Status, and Memories are the keywords I extract from this poetry. These keywords share three same carriers, which are Object, Texture, and Status. Life is the beginning of this world, so I choose the letter “L” as the main body letter for the design.

Design

I use ice melting to reflect the design pattern. I arrange different degrees of melting of each letter connected with the new sequential order based on these letters’ frequencies in the poem. The lower the appearance frequency is, the higher degree of melting will be.
Melting Design A-Z
I also use light shadow to represent time by dividing the 26 letters evenly into a day’s tie. As each period’s sunshine is different, each letter’s lightness cast onto the paper through the die is different. In this way, the time and light of the day is recorded.
