palindrome

Next entry in cubic foot of art series-- palindrome box. Cruising the web on a cold winter eve, I happened on a site listing palindromes (words and phrases that are spelled the same forward and backwards). The phrase ?In words alas drown I? is something I can relate to. I spelled that phrase on sheets of glass, one letter per sheet, so that it recedes into the box toward a graphic of a swimmer in a small hinged box filled with loose alphabet beads. The box is identical when viewed from front or back. By chance, the ?Word a Day? web page that I like posted ?logomaniac? today (someone obsessed with words). Winter and words seem to go together, so stay warm and read.
