Wuthering Primes

The project

Digital manipulation, 70 plates
An excerpt of Emilie Brontë’s Wuthering Heights containing 757 words, that being 342 unique words, was rearranged in 69 word clouds. Each cloud increase in a sequence corresponding to the 68 first prime numbers, arriving to the unique words’ total number. The excerpt is then complete, but can it be understood? The size of the words in the cloud corresponds to the their appearance in the text – the order was replaced by the size.
Four RGB color codes were generated from the letters of the book title and the author’s name.
