A year-long research-based process into the art of obfuscation and typographic interventions. Typographic Obfuscation questions the implications and complicity of data collection within day-to-day communication.
The main direction attempts to subvert existing typographic systems by deceiving technology through obfuscation tactics. In other words, exploring ways of ‘hiding in plain sight’ or the ‘art of misdirection’—through adding noise, obscuring form and breaking pattern within actions and letterforms.
Obfuscation has more disruptive and symbolic potential—it is low tech and accessible—than algorithm-based encryption, which is conventional, complicating, and expensive.
Much of this work is made entirely from code, from the initial typefaces to the resulting conversion processes. See the process here.
