‘‘Fragment Series’ explores the typographic and material interplay between digital and analogue processes where deconstructed letterforms are rebuilt and reframed during the screenprinting process embodying glitch like qualities, referencing the fragmentation of letters during the process of digitisation. It forms part of ongoing PhD research inquiry into typography and the materiality of language. While words and text hold semantic and linguistic value, they also embody a materiality that extends language from within itself. When language, through typographic form, is referred to as something other than its outward role as an ‘invisible’ conduit of information, it is self-referring, it becomes a medium within and reflecting upon itself, offering its own metalanguage, a second order discourse. In this research, a series of process-led typographic ‘events’ through analogue and digital processes examine the visual and material attributes of language within a hybrid, third space, further unravelling the link between means of production and production of meaning.
