an aging society

Once in a blue moon, it is worth asking ourselves if aging is really a bad thing in our lives.

It breaks down the structural changes in the facial muscles into dots, lines, and surfaces, and then displays the results as a bar graph on the screen. These emotions become outputs, projected as light and emoticons on the lighting device right next to it as well as in the bottom of the screen. This is a device that reacts to the emotions expressed by an audience, the FaceReader (by Everyday Practice) currently on display in ‘Typojanchi 2019’. But how does this work relate to typography? Hosted by the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism and organised by the Korea Craft & Design Foundation (KCDF) and the Organising Committee of the International Typography Biennale, the ‘Typojanchi 2019’ took place at…
