The goal of this course is to write outside the rules of legibility. Starting from the marks obtained with the drawing of a plant, we will come to create abstract compositions with writing.

The letters will become abstract shapes and the lines will move in space according to new rhythms and visual balances.

We will thus change our visual relationship with the grid, which is the basis of the idea we have of writing, and we will explore the limits of legibility. This new way of conceiving the text is similar to private handwriting, which allows itself not to follow the lines, to be messed up, piled up, deleted.

We will work on a structure of multiple books, to suggest the coexistence of many worlds and infinite ways of communicating content visually. We will use invented and found tools, searching for the one that best suits our approach. We will try to change our visual relationship with the grid, which is the basis of our perception of writing, and we will explore the limits of legibility.

The page rectangle will be what will ultimately restore structure to our work, bring it back within the limits of the book form. And here we will investigate the composition.
