0 Lightbox Typography

March 19, 2012 — 8:17 pm

I recently have been interested in the idea that oftentimes people don’t know something until it is revealed to them. To explore this idea tangibly, I wanted to use light to reveal or hide message.

The photos here display my first attempt at this lightbox-like project. Unclear of what my messaging should currently be, I use a question mark for the prototype. When the light is off it appears that the object is really just a framed white panel. Upon switching on the light, the typography is revealed. This is just the start to the idea. Perhaps I’ll find a message with meaning. If not, I’ll have an excuse to create some fun patterns and letters!
