Printmaking & Book Arts Professor Patricia Silva is a participant in the international project, THE SHAPE OF ACCENTS – A visual reading of the Divine Comedy.
Launched by the Italian Cultural Institute of Cairo, this international project envisages a graphic and calligraphic transcription of the first 21 lines of Dante’s Divine Comedy into the myriad languages world. Guided by calligrapher/artist Monica Dengo, a group of 24 calligraphers becomes part of ‘Writing the Divine Comedy …. in the languages of the world’.
The work consists of 21 books designed to be hung side by side. Each book contains 3 of Dante’s first 21 lines.
