Angelo Stitz: What is the context of text in a de-contextualised world?



Hi, I am Angelo. I work with type and typography. I am interested in the visual, technical and social aspects of the medium text and its obstacles in translating originality.

I get usually goose bumps when you talk to me about computer science, media and software studies, digital humanities, social science, format history (compression, writing systems, codecs), media archaeology, linguistic, aesthetic, type design, type engineering, media psychology, poetry, performance, rhetoric, improvisation, noise, tool making, automatization, electro mechanics, electric engineering, computation, generative design, creative coding, prototyping, robots, human machine interfaces, hacking and didactic environments.
