Drawing the Dictionary
This work was commissioned for the UK Pavilion at Feria Internacional del Libro (an international book fair) which took place from 28 November to 6 December 2015 in Guadalajara, Mexico.
Responding to the theme of 'collections', I created a mural comprised of a collection of 1,000 small drawings on index cards. Each drawing visualises data (part-of-speech, number of syllables, first letter of word, etc.) from one of the 1,000 most frequently-used English words in order to create a multi-coloured mural highlighting the beautiful variation in the English language.
