In Process forms part of ongoing research into typography and the materiality of language. Typography, the visual representation of language, primarily communicates meaning through written, printed or digital forms. Through this tangible embodiment of language, typography offers an outward symbolic meaning, an external reality in the form of a ‘Sign’1. Viewed through another lens, typography can also reveal the materiality of language; that is when anguage reflects back onto itself enabling another meaning to form on the visual surface, where text can also be viewed as image. Materiality of language discussed here relates to the medium or form by which language presents itself or that through which language is constructed. As typography is utilised as a vehicle to transport language, where it is the material expression or material form of language, it can therefore be considered a critical component of language.
