Title: Alternumerics
Authors: Chan, Paul
Issue Date: 15-Nov-2006
Abstract: Alternumerics explores the intimate relationship between language and interactivity by transforming the simple computer font into an art form that explores the fissure between what we write and we what mean. By replacing the individual letters and numbers (known as alphanumerics) with textual and graphic fragments that signify what is typed in radically different ways, Alternumerics transforms the act of typing into a digital performance and any computer connected to a standard printer into an interactive art making installation. There are five fonts in the Altemumeric collection.
