Description:
This project is an experiment with how to give typography a disability aesthetic. The text has been distorted by a computer algorithm so that some of the letters are delightfully lumpy and misshapen. It is a collaboration with designer Gabriel Loeb and uses Paper-Letters, a tool he created to draw and manipulate text.
