Multilayered Holographic Composite, 59 Samples

Composites, Linguistic Deconstruction

Another iteration of the Multilayered Holographic Composite, with help from my Graphic Design intro class at NHIA:

Holographic-Composite-59

It’s starting to coalesce around the basic letterforms, although “Multilayered” is fuzzier than the other words because there’s a much larger spread of word lengths between different handwriting styles.

If you’d like to be included, please, feel free!

Thanks to my students in my Intro to Graphic Design class, I now have 32 samples of handwriting to compare:
Holographic-Composite-32

It’s interesting, but not quite what I wanted. I used the boxes to try to keep things aligned and corralled, but I’m starting to think I’ll need to normalize the sizes of the samples so I can get better alignment. That might take some time, and I’ll need to remove the boxes while I’m doing it.

Again, I would like to extend an invitation to all denizens of the Interwebs to be part of this interesting process! Simply download the instructions and sample sheet here, follow the directions, and viola! Internet celebrity awaits. I will repeat the instructions here:

1. Print the second page of this PDF. Try not to scale the PDF when printing; i.e. turn off “Fit to Page”.

2. Obtain standard black fine-point Sharpie.

3. Write “Multilayer Holographic Composite” in the three boxes provided, one word per box. See above example. You may write it any way you desire.

Multilayered Holographic Composite – And You’re Invited!

Composites, Linguistic Deconstruction

Another composite project, and this one with an interactive component! I decided to do a composite of handwriting samples, and got my summer school class and the regular attendees at the Bow & Arrow’s Open Press Night to supply the first round. I prepared a standard sampling sheet and had everyone write “Multilayered Holographic Composite” in standard black Sharpie. This is what 20 handwriting samples look like squished together:

Holographic-Composite-20
