I am an avid digital artist. I love Photoshop, cinema 4D and many, many other wonderful programs which allow me to do so much. However I also love making things.
Tangible Type is a self initiated project which I undertook in order to create imagery which I would usually create through using software, I wanted something solid, something which could be appreciated from all angles but when viewed as 2D images would still bring up the age old question; “is this real”.
To achieve this I created foot High letter forms (augmented Eurostyle) from stacks of laser cut MDF. I then used these to form molds so that I could sand cast the letters in glass.Once cast, each letter was frosted and embedded with multiple LED bulbs, with portable battery packs.
