Emblem

In relation to the E-Lit work by Deena Larsen, “Carving in Possibilities“, a honeycomb comes to mind when evaluating an emblem. A honeycomb embodies the quality of exactitude similar to the way the work of Larsen does. The bees of a hive use layers of simple hexagons to build a honeycomb. They use layers of simple shapes to build one of the most important aspects of their lives, a housing station for the honey. Like the meaning of a story, the housing station for their honey is a vital aspect to the bees. The use of layers of hexagons, like Larsen uses her texts, is the simplest way to build the honeycomb.
