fontpatterning (2022)

Based on a happy accident involving an OLED library’s character writing routine. 100 random characters are animated on screen with a background color mask, allowing for unplanned structures and negative spaces to emerge. Displays for 30 seconds before regenerating, endlessly.

This object was shown at the Dadageek Spring 2022 Showcase in Austin, TX.

Arduino, mounted OLED screen. Video demo here.
