"Type of City’
Hong Seon Jang’s “Type of City” (2012) is an entire metropolitan landscape made from movable type. Varying lengths of type enable low-lying regions and skyscrapers to emerge from the canvas, and the viewer is left to explore miniature metal avenues and examine the once-ubiquitous printing technology. The work was seen at Pulse through David Smith Gallery.
It’s fascinating to watch as the need for printed books and typography wanes, the unused objects themselves are more frequently used as an actual medium. Jang also completed a much larger Type City in 2009.
