A AT is typeface collection that explores certain different qualities and possibilities of typography in print and screen-design. The mini-cd-rom* was presenting the first suggestions of how to deal and play with AAT's. The interactive application was finished in early January 2001 for the Royal College of Art's Work In Progress exhibition. Three typefaces were presented called: Delayed, Unfolded and Binary – all in different sound and animation modes. By using mouse and keyboard users can play and write within the application.
AAT [together with singing pasta/eat and be eaten] won the first prize at an international multimedia competition in 2001 that was organised by French interactive television company Noos. Winners were exhibited in October during the International Art Fair 'FIAC 2001' in Paris. read interview
Technical background and aims: The typefaces used to be available for print as post-script fonts and truetype. Further on they were available as AAT's: interactive Flash movies (*.swf) that can be scaled, transformed and finally saved as individual Flash movies for screen-based designs. AAT-compositions can alternatively also be used for post-production purposes.
It is up to your imagination...
