Proof that typography can be exciting and dynamic without being tied down to traditional boundaries. This collective of people put together physical typography that lasts for only a moment in time and becomes part of the environment.
They use inventive methods and physical objects to create their temporary typography pieces.
The above images show the World record: biggest type-domino ever
'The aim was to make a type domino which is saying 'type moves' ... At the end of this one day workshop all 'stoppers' (gaps in the domino row) were removed very very carefully and all individual 'type moves' were connected to create one, very long type-domino. Actually the biggest type domino ever done, build out of more then 13.000 single hand cut domino stones.
And finally at 18.00 o'clock it was time to let it run.'
