A Second Publication
From concept to creation to interactivity, Fraher attributed part of Giannini’s success to his ability to recognize patterns and his fascination with language. “Digital language is not very different from the written word. When you work with a language, you come to recognize patterns and associations. Asa excels at this.”
Experimenting further with his fascination with language, Giannini continues to create products he hopes to publish on more platforms and galleries. He has published a second project, Lexicon, with CSS Light. Lexicon allows the user to type in words that are then transformed on screen into 3D forms resembling dancing double-helixes.
"This is really extraordinary. I’ve never had a student publish two projects from the same semester before," said Fraher.
Describing Lexicon, Giannini said, “The forms created serve more like an abstract sculpture than a functional tool of any sort. Really, the intention is to look at language from another perspective by seeing it as literal structural building blocks instead of a taken-for-granted means of communication.”
Giannini wishes to one day teach graphic design.
