Abstract

In this research we propose a new method for typeface design that incorporates the chronological change of physical materials as the algorithm, and interventions by the environment and users as vari- ables to determine the typeface shape in the design. We have fo- cused on physical materials and phenomena with different time scales, such as vaporization of water, oxidation of copper, discol- oration of leaves, and have designed and implemented a device for forming typefaces.
