The New Typography (Laszlo Moholy-Nagy)
Single-channel programmed projection
Continuous loop
Programming by Luke Dearnley

The intermediary role of typography situated between the author and reader is the perfect vehicle to challenge the perception of written language. This generative work employs a type system activated by Moholy-Nagy’s call for “clarity in all typographical compositions”. The piece utilises the familiar behaviour of on-screen writing tools to elegantly abstract our agreed system of language marks.
