This image shows an installation view presenting scatterG, one of the seven conceptual typefacesI developed for the font family Circling Type, my thesis work. This was my first experiment withtypeface and a conceptual extension of themes in earlier artworks. Starting with standard letters,I extrapolated variations of dimensions and surface areas. In each iteration, I focused on internal/externaldensities, bodies/serifs, positive/negative space, deconstructing letter elements and reconstructingthem into circular reincarnations of equivalent areas. Literal readability was naturally sublimated.Strongly influenced by Buddhist philosophies of Samsara, Nirvana, destruction, rebirth and transcendence,this thesis continued the trajectory of my practice, consolidating a personal framework within the contextof typeface as both visual and ideological communication
