Response to Reading


“Paragraphs do not occur in nature.” This line resonated with me for some reason. It made me realize that everything that we are designing and building, trying to make a hierarchy out of what material we have, goes against nature and is completely in our hands. The pictures illustrating expansion, immigration, elimination, repetition, compression, etc. were a perfect example of organized chaos. It made me look at something that was seemingly so random and realize that someone spent a lot of time aligning each letter the way that they did in order to prove a point and make an impact with their deviation from the normal way the letter was supposed to be typed. This section of the textbook resonates with me because I never thought about how simply changing the structure of a word or a letter can make such a significant impact on the tone, meaning or resolution of the word.
