PENROSE TILING / FONT AND PORTRAITS
This project is an evolution of the one that i made for ADAM - ALPHABET DIGITAL ART MAGAZINE, a magazine for I-Pad by FEFE PROJECT. The brief was to design a font for “Kaos Music”, a music mood that can be represented by a regulated harmony of disordered musical elements. I use the studies of Penrose, an English mathematical physicist, that discovered a particular aperiodic set of prototiles (called Penrose Tiling).
In this second version i designed a new, Bodoni based, font and i made a set of portraits using the Penrose prototiles and rules of composition (no filter was used to make the portraits).
This work is part of a project that aims to explore methods of application in graphic design of the most important, impressive, geomentric studies of Roger Penrose.
