Interactive typography
"letterscapes"

Letterscapes is a collection of twenty-six interactive typographic landscapes, encompassed within a dynamic, dimensional environment. In each landscape, a letter of the alphabet serves as the starting point for a playful, mouse-driven experience. This project poses the question, "How do you play a letter?" In each case, the letterform is reimagined in a virtual two-dimensional or three-dimensional space, and the user can "play" the letter as one would play a game, or a musical instrument.
Letterscapes, by Peter Cho, combines research in interactive typographic forms he completed as a student at the MIT Media Laboratory Aesthetics and Computation Group with client-based work of the past few years.
