We live in a world of resolutions, everything we make, everything we do has to fit in the same grid. As a brick manufacturer you can't produce larger format bircks because nobody will buildt with it. Societies pressure is getting higher every day we create our own limitations in these resolutions The assignment was to produce a generative font. I was inspired by the phenomenon of Desire lines, paths that are created by humans and animals, by breaking the structures of build roads. Most of the times these are shortcuts but the allways seem adventurous. The font I made are basically a set of rules that are impossible to keep. The forms are quite simple in essence but the tool to draw makes it interesting. The project consists of a book with the instructions and a light painting stick to draw them. The stick is to big to stay within the lines and creates in that way, its own desire paths
