Kinesics of Letters (2020)

Colourful text going wild around the reflection of light on the table.

The project consists of four video letters sent once a month during the spring 2020. The poems are combination of handwritten letters, video and text art. The video letters merge spaces we live in and experiential states of mind.

The form develops from the slow rhythm of spring towards a more open and hectic everyday life with questioning if the common normal is the state we want to return to.

Kinesics of Letters mixes the tradition of handwritten letters to animated and mixed aesthetics of modern communication. Text animations are made with p5.js coding and video manipulation.

This project is following the tradition of text and poem art in the way example Paul Sharits did it with Word Movie in 1966.

The blockhouse
is reflected
on my closet door
wow
society is
reflected
on my doors
