This series is a visual representation of interconnectedness based on dialogue in the novel Pride and Prejudice. Dialogue gives shape not only to the story’s characters but also determines the form of the space between them. Emphasizing the interaction between characters, the flow of conversation is tracked by directional lines. The combination of shapes and lines creates a larger picture of the community of characters. The series Velocity explores similar themes.
