Typemotion looks at a variety of artistic productions in which type is animated--from feature films and advertising to artworks and music videos--with examples from 20 countries dating from 1895 to the present. Tracing the transition from analogue to digital treatments of type, it provides insights into larger cultural and media developments, while also speculating on the future of animated type, particularly in the realm of interactive media.
