Words in Motion is a project that explores making visual the spoken or written word. The words on screen provide an interpretation of how words are spoken (their pacing, emphasis, volume) in a given setting or how written words may sound if read out loud. These dynamic "performances" are closer to stage and film performances than to static words on a page of text, and are a personal interpretation by an individual student. This example is from Joshua Eiten in 2015, when he took the course, Time, Motion & Communication.
