Alphabet

I see language as an intricate pattern. One way to communicate language is using Morse code, which takes the letters of the alphabet and translates them into dots (dits) and dashes (dahs). I used these marks to create my own letters, which I used to compare the Morse code and what it symbolizes, the English alphabet. I chose to compare the two using pattern, to give people a different way of seeing the similarities and differences. The right side patterns are dedicated to the alphabet I made, where as the left side is the Morse code combination for the letter. This book was made so the reader could flip through it either way, demonstrating how we communicate in a back and forth manner. Morse code has to follow it’s set of rules closely or it will be misread. Therefore I set certain rules for my book and alphabet, such as a color palette, spacing between the dots and dashes, and staying within a strict grid for the patterns. Each dit, dah and its spacing was meticulously placed when making the patterns.
