Interacting with Variable Fonts using MIDI Controllers
A typographic experiment exploring interaction with Variable Fonts through the use of physical controllers. By combining two relatively new technologies: OpenType Font Variations and Web MIDI, allows accessing MIDI controller data for manipulating CSS properties in the browser. The experiment explores two different types of hardware: Korg nanoKontrol2 control surface and Leap Motion hand motion sensor, each producing contrasting interactive properties.
