Dyslexia, Art and the meaning of Life
It has been suggested that the phenomena of dyslexia may be the next stage of human evolution; individuals who are gifted with the phenomena
of dyslexia often see more than others. At times they may read slower, but imagine if you had to decode every page first would it not slow down your reading?
In the beginning was the word but there was always another element the spaces between the words, a hidden code, just like without silence there can be no music.
Reading without the spaces i is just one big word-search, difficult to understand. As an artist every written page, past present or future is a unique piece of art.
This is the first piece that was created Hamlet In Dyslexia,
Each dot represents a space whilst the dark flowing lines represented the “rivers” often experienced on a page sometimes static
at other times skipping and dancing down the page.
The next piece created focused on the vowels in a piece of poetry by T S Eliot each vowel allocated a colour.
The aim here was to simulate the promotional effect that is sometimes experienced where certain letters
seem to jump of the page whilst others seem to hide in the distance giving the text a 3D effect.
The final piece in this post is Numeric Symphony in Red and is based on the effect that when you look at a table of numbers they seem to come together
Curiously although this is based on numbers most viewers who have dyslexic traits can see the numbers
quickly whilst those who have not the gift see dancing shapes.
finally I would like to leave you with a comment I heard or imagined cannot remember which :
” Dyslexia is frustrating, – Frustrating waiting for others to catch up”.
That all for now, as usual look forward to hearing your views.
