Creating Type With Shadows

The dutch designers of the company Underware, created a series of workshops around the world that experiment with typography.  One of their 2008 workshops, Darkmark, uses shadows to create type.  This allows them to create type anywhere using a variety of objects.  The workshop first creates a variety of sculptures , paying close attention to lighting,  and with these sculptures they use either natural or artificial lighting to create the shadows.   Darkmark wanted to express the relation between 3D and 2D,  the bond between object and image.  You can read more about Darkmark and see the progression from idea to final result on their site Typeworkshop
