In an effort to rebel against the instantaneous and quickly forgotten Facebook messages and Tweets, California artist Annie Vought has created life-size representations of letters she has received, found, and written. She enlarges the letters and then cuts out the negative space with an Exact-o knife, leaving the strong but seemingly fragile individual words to serve as the infrastructure of each piece. She uses different sizes and types of handwriting so that each letter expresses the individual’s mood and constructs a tangible idea of what the writer is like. Pay close attention to the intricacy and delicacy of the letters below!
