New alphabet, new language?
New alphabet, new language?
Typography, sketch and chinese shadow
This work is part of an investigation and lecture I did last weekend in Valencia, Spain, in the 4cit (4th international conference of typography). The project it's done in different phases:

- The deconstruction of two opposite alphabets: a calligraphic and a typographic;
- A study of the white spaces that define the different strokes;
- Based on some rules (like rules of a game) I get combinations of strokes that permit to create new structures (its still incomplete) but with, for example, four strokes I can get different structures;
- Finally I try to join the structures that were created and build a new narrative, a non linear narrative that can be interpretative or simply compositive, you can compare it to the hypertext for example. With the hypertext we are the narrators we create our content our way to understand something; 

The way we visualize information with hypertext it's different of reading a book, or any linear narrative.
With the new technologies and new tools we should start to think in a new way to transmit a signification and we should also stop copying the analogue world. Why do we have to transport the analogue to the digital? Can't the digital world be much more powerful? Or we didn't evolve that much, and we can't transform and understand the world without being trap in our memory, associations and language.

The bottom images can be interpreted in a macro and micro space, you can enter the image in different ways or points, you can zoom in and zoom out. It's like entering in another dimension of interpretation. Each micro part forms another part and another and another, creating a series of patterns, symbols and repetitions in a closed space.
