4D Type by Lo Siento Studio

View all 12 Photos

Bummed out that even the most hi-tech movies are (for now) bound to three dimensions? Take solace in Lo Siento Studio’s 4D typography and its careful, old-school production. Artists carve out, and interlock, two versions of a single letter—and the resulting form “allows the spectator to read it from, minimum, two different positions in space.”  The intention is to make the appreciation of typography a more active process, necessitating the reader’s physical movement. The finished product is as multi-purpose as it is multi-dimensional: the letters are pictured hanging from the ceiling and used as legs of a coffee table. Cheers to an ancient art form made new.

GBlog is her blogging debut, and she is grateful for newfound exposure to objects such as the “Bug Light.” (She favors the stately praying mantis.)
