︎︎︎ Digital media, font-making
What if fonts were designed in a way that they do not resemble the familiar albhabets at all? What happens when text is stripped from its readabilty. What happens when text is consumed only in its formal sense.
Is there a reason why any of the alphabets are shaped the way they are?
Martin Heideggar’s words on the nature of translation are here typed using the newly designed fonts to give following results:
Every discourse has a space of itself, all text is thus spatial and not just discursive, in a literal sense!
A text when stripped off from all its meaning, where the hold of signification and familiarity over text loosens, then it becomes an agglomeration of weird forms with no readability, a mere abstract painting?
