Besides the exciting technique of revealing and concealing, Emil Olsson’s Void Typeface video introduces the concept of a typeface merged with a dynamic light source. Depth is instantly created, and spatial qualities must be considered. Should the light source be dynamic? Should the type be dynamic? Should both? What kind of rules should be set in this relationship? Will typefaces in the future be video files with more dynamic qualities including light and sound characteristics? Will keyboards be used to type these new video typefaces with the same kerning, style changes, sizing flexibility as static typefaces?
