Posters including images from newspapers in the original order they occur in print. The central design motif is the minimization of the design decision making process and the overall removal of the self. I set the margins and the grid, chose an alignment for the images, then placed each image into the grid at their original scale. This concept started as a self portrait effort to document a deteriorating birthdate keepsake passed down from my parents.

A series of self-initiated posters examining the digital technique of image making known as ASCII. ASCII uses repeated glyphs of varying density and spacing to reproduce the silhouette of an image. It is commonly found in code and forums where traditional imagery cannot be housed. It’s limitation as lines of text adds to its austere beauty. Background images were scanned from a mid-century dog training handbook.
