Typographic exploration into generative art and type design.
Glassworks is an experiment in generative design without the use of algorithms, instead taking an analogue approach to allow human error and expression. The type family is derived from Philip Glass’ six-part chamber music work, Glassworks. Using a speaker and laser, the album’s acoustic vibrations were: rendered visible, captured on film, and traced by hand to produce a total of 120 glyphs per movement, after which the six resulting typefaces are named.
