Typographic Blocks

Imagine a world in which words are treated as structures, texts represent buildings, and language is a physical and spatial entity. The letterforms of the alphabet are the core blocks to spell a word stacked on top of each other. Adding letters one by one, putting in the missing dots and arranging the shapes creates a structure, which by itself represents a building. A home. The gaps in-between the letters, the negative shapes between the blocks create a balance and harmony. They are different between two letters and vary from word to word. In a sense they are unique to every home. 

The gaps show the unspoken memories—the instants that remind us to put life on pause. These are the moments in life that words cannot describe. Even in a world that words and language are tangible life happens in the gaps in-between the spoken matters.
