Type of Letters
Many consider today’s world to be a digital world – a world of digital spaces and communications.
However, it is surprising to see, that even in todays time we heavily rely on and use ‘old school’ forms
of communication (letters, newspapers etc.). In addition we are pleasantly surprised and appreciative of something that is created for ‘real’ – something physical that we can touch and feel outside of the digital space.
I then came up with an idea to combine the aspects – ‘old school’ communications and making something for ‘real’ –, which took the form of an installation piece; I call ‘Type of Letters’
I started with collecting my own mail over a period of 4-5 months and created 5 different variations:
- The word 'Type' / Number '50' / 'The New York Times Magazine' logo / The symbol '@' / Letter 'A'
