I have chosen modularity as the graphic element for Visibility.

A module is a fixed element used within a larger system or structure. The example the graphic design book gives is that of a pixel. Many pixels work together to create a digital image. Modules can be found in many places. For example, a brick wall is made up of bricks. Each brick is a module.

In Soliloquy, the author’s modules are words. Each word is a fixed unit that builds up a sentence. The sentences are also modules. These sentences work together to create dialogue.

The author, Kenneth Goldsmith, highlights the use of modules in dialogue. You can only see one sentence at a time. By highlighting a single sentence on the page, Goldsmith is highlighting the module. No longer do we focus on the dialogue. But, instead we focus on each sentence on its own.
