We live in a Literal World.


Wisconsin Central Hoppers
Power Plant Railroad Siding
Madison, Wisconsin

Our perceptions of the railroad are shaped by images of steel caravans thundering into endless perspective over silver rails; car after car captured as it passes into the distant horizon.

Between the ribs of a Wisconsin Central hopper car lie typographic abstractions, textures and contrasts etched into steel transformed by wear and weather.
