Using a given text: Mare Liberum, the publication explores the use of the type as texture to visually represent the changing tide. The typography has been distorted and photographed through varying levels of water. As the tide goes out, saturation decreases throughout the publication, and the typography becomes increasingly legible. As the tide comes back in, saturation increases and the type becomes more distorted. Behind the type are photos taken of textures when the tide was at varying heights. The publication has been shrink wrapped and the entire essay printed on the exterior.
