UnwearableIncomeXR

UnwearableIncomeXR is an augmented-reality interactive installation that generates shoes on the viewer as they approach the piece. An elongated monitor acts as both a playful mirror and a window into an alternate dimension of futuristic footwear. In response to the exponential growth of streetwear, specifically sneaker culture, UnwearableIncomeXR generates a wearable experience that cannot be purchased.

a for apple and picking the right one is tricky

Typefaces bring meaning and impact to words. By using a particular typeface, a word can make you feel buoyant, evoke nostalgia, add suspense, be romantic, be playful and so much more.

Hence, choosing a typeface needs deliberation.

When I design, I am drawn towards my three favourite typefaces. I believe these are suitable for everything.

I do however ponder their suitability and then dive into the universe of typefaces. This stimulates me – I can play, test and experiment with the endless options of typefaces.

This exhibit is a snapshot, a more organised graphic representation of how I look at typefaces when I design.

Step onto the orange circle and immerse yourself in the 714 possibilities.

The Houston Cinema Arts Festival is a film festival dedicated to commemorating the various works of Wes Anderson, while providing an in-depth experience of Anderson’s early life, education, and debut as a director and filmmaker. Wes Anderson is known for bringing nostalgia to life through his distinctive visual and narrative directing style.
