Word Cloud Project

For my public Wordcloud diorama, I use visual focus to create typographic hierarchy. I experimented with a variety of lenses, including liquid-filled containers. Each printed word was identical in size. Using depth & distortion, words that are closer to the viewer will have greater clarity & focus than those further away.

Source material for this experiment was a digital copy of the novel Fire Sea by Margaret Weiss & Tracey Hickman. Uploading the text to Wordle (an online word-cloud generator), provided a visual of the most common words used throughout the book. The size of the word represents it’s hierarchy.
