Interface Typeface is an exploration of performance-based typography as a means for togetherness in times of social distancing.
It’s achieved by misusing the virtual background on Zoom in such a way that it swallows parts of the body like an invisibility cloak, and encouraging participants to align elements of their bodies to form virtually continuous shapes.
This work was developed in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic and has been a starting point for online remote workshops with the University of Bedfordshire in England, lead from Montreal.
Concept, typography: Amandine Alessandra
Assistant: Mark Anthony Aguirre Oliva
