text/ure

In the textual world, and in each language, meanings are associated with specific geometries and their different conglomerations. Meanings have become visual entities. In a sense, ideal communication would be a frozen world of meanings, sounds and geometries. But would it be? In the text/ure participatory art installation the artists are trying to fluidly reform the relation of text and geometry. They vitalize  parametric design and digital fabrication in order to re-visualize each word in relation to the phrase it appears in. In the textual world an utterance is a scratch, more a texture than a text, a text/ure.

note: Visitors are encouraged to rearrange the text/ural conglomerations. Each cnc milled block is a word, words of same phrase have same height, but their lengths are relevant to the textual form of the word itself. 

The event is finished.
