Textscape Concept Generates 3D Documents for Interactive Reading Process

Chinese Artist, Hongtao Zhou creates 3D documents to re-emphasis printing in modern technological world. Printing technology was first created in accent China to reproduce text using woodblocks, however today’s definition had been widely adopted in 3D printing, an additive process more often to create objects instead of duplicate text.

Textscape generates letter-sized 3D documents to visually profile the subject matters of the texts, such as cities, landscapes or figures. These documents make reading process interactive for general audience or blind people to read as knowledge as well as art. This series of work has text variations of braille, different language characters, calligraphies and number systems to bridge the text and its visuality in architecture, landscape, portraits and abstract matters. Other participating artists are Tyler Francisco, Rhealyn Dalere and Chin Fang Chen from the School of Architecture at the University of Hawaii-Manoa. Hongtao Zhou is their Professor.
