“Semi Automatic Type: Content In Composition” is a typographical experiment on a random generated font. It combines verbal content and aestetic composition and is inspired by the chinese I-Ching, architecture, chaos and order. The syntax of language pieces is combined with their semantic content and transformed into complex shapes. All this is supposed to work interactively from input provided by the audience. Tim de Cort is the brain behind this idea, concept, and the processing software, Kiritan Flux provides a retrofuturistic human interface.
