Burst Helvetica 2


INABA Hideki


This work takes letters from the Latin alphabet letters in Helvetica font, deforms them virtually beyond recognition, and uses the resultant lines in a composition. In the distant past, words, which relied solely on the human voice, came to be written and gained the means for transmission on paper. Today, written words beyond counting abound on the internet as the means for communication. The work is an attempt to create a third means for communication that is neither sound nor letter by transcending words through digital molding.
