the most important things are the hardest to say because words diminish them

This piece investigates the dimensional space of text and what is necessary to identify something as text. Each paper cube stands for a letter in the title of the piece, sized after the width and height of each letter. The depth of each cube is also determined based on analysis of individual letterforms and their relation to others.
