Deconstructing Dialogue is an abstraction of Coffee and Cigarettes, a film by Jim Jarmush composed of eleven short films. Each of these short vignettes feature a discussion at a table where the characters drink coffee and smoke cigarettes. Each poster in this grid is a dissection of the dialogue in a scene. The structures are derived from studying aspects of conversation such as the frequency of words. The overlapping themes, connections, and recurring topics in the film inspire the forms that these diagrams take.
