Stranger, 2008
While working with these particular letters, I discovered they make beautiful tones when they are tapped like a bell. I decided to work that into my ultimate design. I then played around with the message and loved the ambiguity of the word "stranger." There is the person you never met before and don't know. Or maybe it is someone you thought you knew but now you don't? Or is it youself? And then there is the idea of something, or someone, being more strange than before. Like the chimes that can be heard when the wind blows through this piece.
