Written Wor(l)ds: The Alchemist

Written Wor(l)ds is a collaborative project between the University of Houston's Creative Writing and the School of Art, Graphic Design. Students took upon creating tangible interpretations of prominent literary pieces exhibited at Third Space, UH School of Art. Paulo Coelho’s novel The Alchemist inspired this creation of joined forces, stimulated by the geography and time period of the narrative. The piece re-contextualizes the book’s motifs and explores subjects such as the purpose of life, predetermined destiny, true happiness, and love.
