The Typographic Garden, an illuminated typographic installation, was an interdisciplinary workshop I taught together with Axel Buether at Burg Giebichenstein. The main idea was to create a garden made out of light- and shadow-type (using non-organic objects, projecting words onto walls, ceilings and floors). The students were asked to exlore the potential of semantic typography in combination with space and 3-dimensional objects as well as light-shadow projections.
The typographic garden was shown during the “Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften” (night of science) in Halle and will be shown again during the end of the year show at Burg Giebichenstein, July 17, 18 and 19 2009.
