In this project, the assignment was to make a type out of a personal fascination. I have this thing with light and shadows, and what those two things can do together, so I made a font based on the concept shadow. The font is split up in two parts. The one is made to catch the light, and the other is to fill up the shadow of the first part. It only works if you use both two parts, otherwise you’re not able to read the text.

In the photo’s you can see what the type looks like if you only use the part which catches the light. And in the video, I developed a performance in order to bring the two types of light and shadow together.
