Objectified Type

We’ve seen some inventive re-purposing of objects into other things, but illustrator and typologist Viktor Koen takes a unique approach to found objects. Koen collects bits and parts of imagery, and re-builds them into alphabets. He obsessively takes and collects photos – of toys, armor, fish, etc – and craftily constructs beautifully collaged letters from the scavenged parts. His work is currently on view in “Metamorphabets” at the Type Director’s Club through April 30.
