The graphic element that I find as the most impactful for the work of Oni Buchanan, “The Mandrake Vehicles”, is hierarchy. The E-Lit work starts with a paragraph, the words all on the same level. As you move through the piece, the letters that are removed to show the connections of other words are risen from the paragraph to show the emphasis of the changing letters. I feel that if the letters that are removed were to be just eliminated with out the effect of hierarchy the powerful meaning behind them would be lost.
