Absolutely love this typographic (almost a data visualization) work by Hong Seon Jang exhibited in David B.Smith gallery. Wouldn't mind to see some more close-up(s) of this impressive cityscape.
“Among his contemporary works on display, Type City is Jang’s sprawling metalopolis seaport made of tall lead type buildings and boulevards bisecting the city into a topographic and typographic landscape. With the patience of a skilled hand typesetter, he set the tall buildings of metal type upright so they are capped with individual letters. Long lead piers stretch out to the sea, and empty city blocks and sidewalks of spacing material frame the city center.”
