"MODIFIED," an exhibition at the Commons Gallery, features the work of ten BFA students in ART 466 Typography III, a course taught by Professor Chae Ho Lee at the Department of Art and Art History, University of Hawaiâ€˜i at MÄnoa.
The students created unique alphabets inspired by astronomical phenomena, Japanese woodblock printing (ukiyo-e), Jewish/German Blackletter, Hispanic textiles, low poly graphics, Maori Kowhaiwhai patterns and origami folds. Non-Latin alphabets were also created and inspired by Japanese handwritten menus, 17th century Russian scripts and combining an Armenian alphabet with Hawaiian petroglyphs. The exhibition includes a series of large format color posters displaying each alphabet as well as a specimen of the alphabetâ€™s letterforms in use. Each student also presented their alphabets lasercut into vibrant acrylics and exotic woods, printed onto fabric, folded into paper or carefully woven with thread into a typographic sculpture.
