CODE metaphorically and literally zooms in on the material, working on it in enormous detail, trying to see more and extract more. Text is atomised for its component words, characters and spaces, in search of integrated form and meaning. I am working in a sea of seven-point type, committed to the idea of using individual character forms in an expressive way, disregarding conventional typographic hierarchies. CODE is also to do with the technology. Made on a notvery- powerful machine with ludicrously small storage options (44MB SyQuest disks), working with large images isn’t practical, so I use fragments and build forms integrated with type.
