Chronomyth: Experimental Videotypography

For the project Chronomyth: Experimental Video Typography Vedran Pilipovic has developed four systems that transform literary texts into a multi-layered, rhythmic audio-visual output determined by the intra- and intertextual structures of the texts used. With four available 'videofonts', he has created a demonstration for each font that draws both from core texts and from intertextual elements such as dust-jacket quotes and references in other works. The texts used are Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude, William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury, Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita, and Dusko Trifunovi's poem 'Kolo bola'.
