Computers have revolutionized our everyday lives, but writing is not very different from using a typewriter.
What if typography could reflect the author's emotions? Kimim does.
Kimim is a computer program and mutable typeface which adds an emotional dimension to text. On a spectrum between earnest and very happy the program interprets the facial expression of the writer and translates it typographically.
This The interplay of human emotions, computer cameras, software, and the content of a message raises questions about communication in the Digital Age.
Kimim is a project by Matthias Gieselmann, Max Schuler, and Pantos.
