"Schriftmaschinen - Talking Type" exhibition project.
Typography is a tool to give shape to a content. Readability comes first - the matter has to be comprehended as fast as possible. But how do typefaces look like whose shapes typify the content, whose characters form a statement? The exhibition "Schriftmaschinen - Talking Type" showed projects dealing with this issue. Conventional type design was replaced by objects, installations, posters and programming that challenge the traditional use of fonts.
Works that are extending the classical field of typography were part of the exhibition. The exhibition took place in August 2010 in Karlsruhe, Germany.
