Written Wor(l)ds was part of Creative Mapping, a special topics course that brought together University of Houston MFA/BFA Graphic Design, School of Art and MFA/PhD Creative Writing, Department of English. The Written Wor(l)ds exhibition set out to represent both the words and the worlds of selected literary texts.
Architecture and graphic design students at the University of Houston collaborated with a steel manufacturer and a local park to create a micro-pavilion to house a sound art installation. The project demonstrated the potential use of office cubicle waste for disaster relief housing.
