Project Medium: Installation + Website

Lettergraphy is an installation which generates print from the process of making a handwritten letter. It documents the tracing and movements of a pen from writing through a digital device, and transfers this process into a physical print with an algorithmically generated pattern. This unique pattern is a combination of information analysis between an analogue and digital writing style. It is also a documentation of this one-time writing experience which tries to represent the communication between material, others, and ourselves.
