Typeforce 8 @ Co-Prosperity Sphere, Chicago

Typeforce 8 @ Co-Prosperity Sphere, Chicago

Last week I was in Chicago to take part in Typeforce 8, the annual show with type-based work from Chicago and the rest of the world. For this exhibition I made 25 text pieces that visually work as one big installation. The 25 pieces are snippets of texts that I found in the spamfilter of my email address. All the letters are hand sawn out of 9 mm lacquered poplar plywood.

An opening report van be found on Trendbeheer (“it was nuts!”).

Typeforce runs until March 3, 2017.
