Sam Winston is a London based artist who often uses words to create art. Mr. Winston suffers from dyslexia and I imagine this form of expression is a method of overcoming his obstacles.

From his website:
Initially he imagined working in real time, marking the beat of each life with a small circle.

The result is a set of images, of haunting intensity, that capture the ebb and flow of the planet’s population.
