With Head-Code, from my series Language as Object, I aimed to design linguistic system that emulates the immersive experience of language exposure and encourages the user to interact with the written code on different scales and in different contexts. I designed and welded a modular screen that divides a space with a series of large scale metal symbols.

Each of the 7 modules of the Screen, averaging around 5 feet, stands just below human scale. Due the screen's large scale, it emulates the immersive and grandiose impact that language has on our environments. When assembled, the tangible script slithers through the space just as words pass through the air or bounce back and forth between two people.
