Way back in the first year of my degree I did a number of typographic experiments for a project titled 'Hidden London'. I stumbled upon these images whilst trying to sort through archives of mess on my computer.
I wanted to represent this by creating type out of natural processes. With my input I controlled the growth and shape of the type, but when I abandoned my work, nature took over and my creations were swallowed.
These photos show the stages of rust as I control it to create type. Out of all the type experiments for 'Hidden London', this was by far the most successful.
Apologies for the poor quality photos.
