As the name suggests, Text Invader aims to generate fonts that can attack and infect the 'content' in search for a pattern that may alter the context ironically or metaphorically. We will implant the Text-Invader 'virus' as various visuals: graphic images, letters, and abstract forms, which will be generated as an OpenType font format. Virus images will not be used arbitrarily to alter the look of the content. It will rather substitute the images with certain repetitive letters, words and even lines of text in search for creating a meta-text: Text in which the author’s intentions have been intermediated by the typesetter. This will further open a discourse and discussion about the author's and designer's roles in typesetting. Read Less
