DESCRIPTION Historically typography has been designed with two axes in mind, x and y. Today, in contrast, designers are broadening their perceptions about type to accommodate the added dimensions of a digital and experiential world. Recent innovations in type design take principles of animation, interactivity, and kinetic movement and combine them with traditional components of typography, resulting in pioneering explorations in motion typography. It follows that these “live” fonts would embody certain characteristics or cultural styles as they move, transform and react to their environment. This exhibition brings together the work of designers and artists who are leading the way in these experiments with digital type. The exhibition will include work in a variety of media–video, projections, models, drawings, objects, computer animations and interactive installations. Exhibition design by Rice+Lipka Architects, New York.
