For my project Numerical Compositions, I have designed a set of single stroke duo-tone numericals to make typographic posters with the plotter. It felt obligatory to complete the alphabets, which lead to Alter. Because each character is live generated with code, I want to create an alternative typeface that feels forever changing and dynamic. The alternations incorporate colors and geometric constructs–curve/straight line, circle/polygon and vertical/oblique. Sometimes words feel strange with odd kernings, and different color combinations change the mood of how they read. Capricious, flawed and unpredictable just like humans.

I've also explored Alter in 3D space, by creating tube-like geometry from the 2D letterforms. Checkout the prototype:yuinchien.com/projects/alter/3d
