Research - the images I've put on the board aren't collagraphs, they're just ideas on how to use text. I'm investigating how artists us text in their works...
Joseph Beuys (images 1 - 4) for example... http://www.grahamegalleries.com/category/centre-for-the-artists-book/artists-books-beuys-brecht/
Michael Glassmeir (image) 5
Guiseppe Chiari's work (image 6) - shows that it's not just about words, but symbolism. A few artists use music in their 'written pieces', Christian Marclay (Griffiti Composition) is another artist using music.
or Philip Corner's 'A piece of reality for to day' (image 7)
