Type that behaves: the prospect of autonomous type creatures

"From sketch to final creation for his Biotypography project, Oded [Ezer] wanted to create live, almost cinematic situations where these typo creatures 'act' and 'behave.' He says the most difficult part of the project was the issue of balance – where to draw the line between the insect and the letters.

Biotypography – typo art project depicting manipulated Hebrew and Latin 'Typo creatures.'

'When I saw an ant on the floor of my studio, I started to imagine what would happen if this was a creature half ant and half letter. Wouldn't it be wonderful if nature had invented letters? And then maybe different letter–ants could gather, create words and communicate with us!?'

'I could manufacture a medium wherein typography could develop and evolve into something completely different.'"
