Response to Reading

Hierarchy-

“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.
