Upper Case & Lower Space – 19.05.2012Category: Events
Based on the idea that the most interesting part of an animation is always the transition from a to b, Ingo Italic developed “Buchstabengewitter extended” a generative typography kit using the toolkit vvvv. This dynamic framework transforms three-dimensional linear structures into all the letters of the alphabet, fluidly morphing from one to another. In this explicit shown multitoucinstallation each letter is animated anyway and controlled by touch. Each letter can be modified by changing parameters like pivot and positioning and morphed into any glyph of the alphabet using the interface on the multitouch table.
Mino Light’s „Cocoon“ approaches an experimental demonstration made in Nodebox. Lines start to grow randomly, filling the body of a font. At first, only inside the path, and step by step, they end up wrapping the letters like a cocoon in which new types and combinations come to life. With only a few lines of code it is possible to create almost infinite interactions between
graphic elements and type. The video created for the event will illustrate one of these unlimited combination.
