Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King - I Have A Dream
What you are looking at bears little reselmblace to the work it is referencing. Unfortunately, it is not possible, with current technology, to reproduce the look or feel of a print three feet wide by seven and a half FEET high, printed on transluscent velum and suspsended with in an atrium. A high resolution PDF is available by request. For a sense of scale, the body type ranges from 24 pt to 90 pt, Bookman Old Style. This typographic representation of Dr. King's paradigm shifing speach was commissioned by Gallery 303, New England Institute of Art, in honor of Martin Luther King Day and the innauguration of our nation's first African American President. The six typographic panels and four image panels (not represented here as distribution rights were not obtained), were larger than life and suspended by cables between the first and second floors of the central atrium of the building. The speech, printed in its entirety on each text panel, was broken into six basic sections and each section considered for it's theme, tone, and meaning, then transformed into accompanying text/image elements. Much credit must be given to Thomas Gustainis and our devoted students in facilitating the physical aspects of the installation.
