At the American Bookcenter’s Urban Arts Festival, Dutch design agency Autobahn will present the booklaunch of 3D Typography and exhibit a new project: #StoneCarvedTweets.
The pace of modern communications is very high. Twitter is a good example. Anyone can let everyone know what he / she is doing in 140 characters at any moment. Autobahn reflects on this fact by connecting Twitter with a highly contrasting communication method: text cut from stone. We expand the font of Dutch architect and typographer Dom Hans van der Laan with numerals 0 to 9, the @ - and # sign. A Twitter Stream (# Stonecarvedtweets) is the input for us to cut. We will print the messages and places them in the ‘inbox’ of the stonecarver(s).
Send your message now! We’ll post photos of the event and the carvings.
