ON FEB 24, 2016
“If I have one motto, it’s that you should probably try to work with unusual materials and unorthodox methods.”
In Petri Dish Typography from PechaKucha Night Tokyo’s 133rd volume, Jerusalem-based designer Ori Elisar’s presents on his award-winning Living Language project. Dealing with the evolution of the Hebrew language and letter, Ori uses scientific procedures and a live organism – the Paenibacillus vortex bacteria– as his medium. Ori will show us how biological fabrication technologies can interact with the design world.
