Type Composition

September 25, 2008 at 7:40 pm (Image Pairs and Type Composition)

The relationship between my type composition and my image pair is both visually and conceptually related. The huge “A” helps represent the shape of the woman’s dress in the image pair. Also, the way that the negative space is so bold in the type composition is a reflection of the boldness of the image pair. The conceptual relationship of the two pieces is dealing with touching. There are innuendos playing on the page that could be considered inappropriate. The idea of a “Burning Touch” could mean something sexual like acquiring a sexually transmitted disease or a touch between lovers. My intention was not to make this inappropriate, but I enjoy the idea that there are many ways to interpret the composition. Both of the compositions are strong by themselves, but when they are combined, they become even stronger.
