Sudfah (Arabic for "happy accident") is a generative collection celebrating the beauty that can emerge from chaos, mistakes, and accidents. A single calligraphic line intends to tell one story (sometimes wandering and confused in it's own right, but always starting on the left and ending on the right). Digital liquid is spilled upon it and takes the ink in directions that are unexpected, uncontrolled, and tell a much more interesting story than the one the line intended.... and often more beautiful.
Read about the process that went into making Sudfah here.
