Words into Art

I am facinated by words & language and frequently like to include it in my artwork.  Today I was doing a little surfing and found this cool new website (well, new for me…you may have known about it a long time ago!)…it’s called Wordle.  According to their site:

“Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.”

You can change fonts, colors, layout, etc….it’s a fun little gadget to play with! I made this image by inputting my artist statement:

Anyhow, the next time you want to present your words or message in a new way or even if you just want to spend a few minutes “playing” give Wordle a try!
