Investigation Three

Using paper prints of the letterforms from Investigation Two, I am looking at how much control or constraint in a design is too much; when does too much design make something less engaging? I have collaged together the letters into words, using freeform ripped edges (less constraint), linear cuts that attempt to follow the letterforms (some constraint), and vertical straight cuts to each side of the letterforms (more constraint).
