 Under the umbrella of an invented alphabet, Zoë Elena Moldenhauer explores sentence structures, syntax, linguistics, and more to create a world that coexists with a modern reality while remaining fictional. Her process of communication rescripts language in code via visual translation to detail conversations, thoughts, and writings. These meticulous paintings and drawings evolve from Moldenhauer’s research, manifesting mapmaking, text, and philosophy as abstractions that are as elusive and whimsical as language.
