Getting some feedback on my ideas for the “map of me”, I have looked in to more designers and art/design with type in space. Adding to my list of inspiration- I now place Alexander Calder and his beautiful work with mobiles and installations, and Jessica Walsh’s bold colour work and type. Jessica Walsh also uses a colour palette through out her portfolio that is similar to what I want to use for my project.
Another name I will add to my list of inspiration is Jenny Holzer. She does light projections on to buildings, giving them a whole other sense of life and it’s really beautiful.

Searching for “type in space” on pinterest I came across so much inspiring work that it almost leaves me more confused than before I had any ideas at all. Wayfinding solutions, huge type and numerals on floor and buildings, swirling around staircases and cramming in small spaces; there are lots off cool stuff out there basically!
Studying these images I’ve decided that instead of colour blocking my images of buildings- I’m going to keep their 3D form, having my conversations wrap around them sort of. Weather I do this digitally or not is a decision for another day.
