Whispering The Alphabet is a project that our featured artist created where in her opinion, the alphabet in the story is a metaphor of human life, the beginning and the end. Read on and see how this amazing artist made one beautiful masterpiece from a simple letter mixed with artifacts.

It was the best job offer so far: Canadian theatre artist asked me to make a poster for his metaphorical short story "Whispering the alphabet", the poster which would be 100% my interpretation.

It is hard to say how long it all took. The creative process - thinking, was quite stretched in time, but the execution took exactly 3 days: day 1: I bought paper, baby dummies and candles, day 2: I constructed it all and photographed the set, and on the same day and a half of day 3 I was retouching it in photoshop

In my opinion, the alphabet in the story is a metaphor of human life, so I decided to show "A" as the beginning of life and "Z" as the end. Meanwhile, I thought about some typography variations - small "a" would be chubby as a baby and thin "Z" would symbolise a dead person. In the end I decided that simple letters mixed with artefacts connected to birth and death would be the best solution.
