“AND YET, I KNOW”
Typographic Fencing defines space and prompts conversation by creating large-scale text in areas where it is not expected – around the edges of parking lots, near ravines, off divided highways. This specific installation is meant to be permanent and is constructed from industrial strength nylon webbing. Squares in chain-link or vertical-bar fences become bixels on a screen or canvas, the medium for messages. They are installed anonymously, converting overlooked spaces into landmarks. By transforming large-text into large questions, they aim to spark a dialogue. The installation at Griffiss was selected as one of the Top 100 works for Typographic Excellence for 2018.
