The Hidden Woman Series
CONCEPT: Inspired by the desires to bring attention to Nigerian art and to combine text and image in an elegant manner, The Hidden Woman series consists of three text mosaic images based off of the work of Nigerian artist David Osagie. The pixels of the original images are saved and replaced with the phrase "O te aka o di njo, emesie o ga-adi nma." In Igbo, one of the prominent languages spoken in Nigeria, this phrase means, "Things will get better in time." Though each of the images says this phrase, variations in spacing between the pixel overlays result in dramatic visual differences.
