This project was based purely on my own curiosity. I wondered what would it look like if I cut out all of the words from a book and placed them in alphabetical order. I seriously thought I would end up with 26 pages. I was wrong. In the end, I had more questions than I did answers. In the process in putting this piece together, it had not only broke down the story completely; it had placed a new purpose/function to each of the words exhibited by displaying them in order.
