‘Typographic symbols printed on paper capture, activate and regulate light; they can be comprehended only in conjunction with the unprinted areas. The printed value evokes its counter-value and the two together determine the overall form. The unprinted area is not an un-definable vacuum but an essential element of what is printed’. Here Emil Ruder discusses the importance of light in typography. The process involved in the projection pictured below, mirrors this description. The polished and unpolished sections of the aluminium (counter form and form), essentially capture, activate and regulate light, distorting the projected image as it is reflects back on to the wall. The contrasting reactions to light within the material shows similarities to paper and ink on paper.
