Type In The Sky
I came across this on another online blog, a piece of visual artist Lisa Rienermann, that depicts the letters of the alphabet formed by the shapes buildings make against the sky when photographed from below.
She first came across the letter Q, in a courtyard in Barcelona, and since went on to complete the alphabet, presenting the visual collection in a box, shown below.
This is a great example how one image, idea or piece of inspiration can generate a whole project. The unique nature of these images and the visual interest they create for the viewer was what caught my attention to the project; I think there is potential within the project to push the concept much further, perhaps for some work based on one city/place and it illustrates just how inspiration and ideas can be found anywhere.
