will ashford: recycled words.

In the great word-bending tradition of Tom Philips’ Humement comes California-based artist Will Ashford’s Recycled Words.
In a series of cut outs, spirals, doodles, and ink blots he re-vamps existing text into new poetry and messages you never knew were concealed within. As in the work above, “Look for Art 267”, I love how he uses the process of high-lighting. Normally used to break texts down into their most salient points, Ashford’s highlights do the opposite: ignore the existing text and instead reveal an entirely different meaning locked in the sentences.
