Reason for Award

This was a novel work amidst the many personal imagined scenery work found in the area of still digital images. The complete version of “Alice in Wonderland” was printed in a large oval in the smallest possible legible writing. According to the frequency of use of the words, the words are written on the inner surface of the oval with the sequence of the letters changed. Of course, the words “Alice” and the “King” can be seen, but the size of these words are placed at an equidistance from the place the letters have been used, and the words that appear throughout the entire book are placed more towards the center. This work is a result of an extremely intuitive analysis in graphic form, which expression has only been made possible with computer usage. Simultaneously, this work lets us enjoy the graphics as well.
