Artist Statement

This poster series, I Don’t Understand, focuses on the interaction between viewer and letterform; how abstraction of the commonly known and personal knowledge affects whether communication is successfully transmitted. By repeating the phrase in various languages and levels of distortion, Christina searches for the line between understanding and illegibility.
