TYPOKINETICS
the manifesto of the moving script :

KUGELOBJEKT

Letters begin to twist and turn, to stop and go.

They execute acrobatic tricks, leaving even their designated homegrounds;

their pirouettes may be indicative of a century of the virtual world,

which is why I ask

"What has happened to the real movement ?"


Riding towards boredom on the Intercity express,

if one can believe the experts,

typography is trailing behind

at half the speed.

I tell you: Script is a loose floozie,

who shall carry her in a sedan chair

into the next century ?

CARRY_G, 3k

Giant; manylayerd

onehundredandfifty foot high

lower case letters creeping

over the roofs - of the world capitols.

TOWN LETTERS SKYLINE

Great visions forms,

the coursing planets- large and monumental -

will become the Alpha and the Omega.
