Block Type Experiment 

OK this is the last physical typography project for awhile, I promise. At first glance these wooden letters appear to be nothing more than a few blocks organized on a table to create a standard alphabet. However the letters are actually illusions of perspective, viewable only from the photographed angle, certain elements stacked high while others layered below are actually far in the background. Designed and photographed by Marc Böttler, see the full alphabet here. Neat! See also Jérôme Haldemann’s toothpick type project for a similar idea. (via ignant)

Ryo Shimizu Creates Immense Stories that Crumble from Gallery Walls 


(click images for detail)

CNJPUS TEXT is the latest work from Tokyo-based artist Ryo Shimizu. The text is formed by using strokes borrowed from Chinese characters and then restructuring them into letters of the Roman alphabet. Via artist a day:

Shimizu is influenced by Japanese traditions and practices–the relationship between history and modern society and between the self and other people. His work ranges from photography to three-dimensional objects and installations.

This appears to be his third and largest in a series of text-based installations dating back to 2009. (via artist a day, sweet station)
