Blueprints is a series of visual poems based on architecture. They attempt to expand off of the flat page by creating three-dimensional textual structures. Andrew Topel's blueprints demonstrate a brilliant scaffolding of thought and language. The words are more than words: they are supports and wings and evidence of artistic power. Their many variations, emanations live beyond themselves. They lift with eyelight into a distance that they help devise. Topel's architextures offer the concrete bounty of their wholeness, while singing affirmations of each tiny increment of stroke. Their vibrant motion elicits with immediacy, infinity. One feels and sees from up close and from far away to find a world. Andrew Topel's visual poetry is the best argument we have for celebrating the alphabet.
