I write a word next to a mirror trying to find if another word can be read in its reflection. For example, the word “language” can be read from the other side as “geometry”, or the word “Antarctica”, becomes “statistics” etc. This is achieved by twisting a bit the calligraphy until another word starts to take shape in its reflection. This form is then extruded and made into a physical object. One single shape becomes the container of two words, therefore two meanings.

In the ambigram series:
antarctica - statistics
dow jones - blowjob
empire - enquire
language - geometry
doubt - faith
robot - today
monument - trembling
puzzled - blessed
oil - lie
