I was having a browse through "vimeo" as you do when you are killing some time and came across this great experiment with type. It was was produced by some clever people from the Royal Academy of Arts (KABK) in the Hague.
You can catch the video on the link here: http://vimeo.com/17692718
I have also taken some snap shots of the film to give an idea of what they were doing.
Can't wait to have a go at something like this!!!
