  • Heterosis
    A Kinetic Typeface
  • Heterosis is a three-dimensional typeface made from plexi-glas and transparent elastic. This kinetic typeface constitutes one of the three typefaces I developed for my Master's thesis at York University in Toronto. The term heterosis is used within agriculture to describe the increased function and fecundancy that results from cross-breading plants. The term has also been applied to humans, and suggests that racial hybrids are, in general, healthier and more attractive than non-hybrids due to their inherently wider gene pool. This typeface was produced through a mathematical 'blending' technique and results in three-dimensional structures that each represent a letter of the alphabet. This typeface represents the positive and beautiful aspects of racial hybridity.
