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 came up with an idea to combine these aspects – ‘old school’ communications and making something for ‘real’, which took the form of an installation piece; I call ‘Type of Letters’.
I collected my own mail over a period of 4-5 months and started with creating a play on the ‘@’ symbol. It showed a perfect combination of digital and old school communications. I then went on to create 4 more variations: The Number ‘50’ / ‘The New York Times Magazine’ logo / Letter ‘A’ / The word ‘Type’ (not showcased here)
