sound spaces

Continuing the exploration of spaces between words, I wondered how the spaces changed when the text was hand-written rather than typed. There is a precise rhythm to the spacing in typed words, of course, the text is even in size and the shapes vary not at all. Written work, on the other hand, offers much more space for variation, both intented and accidental via the process of ‘manuscipting’.

In this drawing, I wrote the text in wax, then added the blobs of wax to indicate the spaces between the words. The resulting rhythm of  blobs brings to mind a kind of  weird musical notation.
