- What better gift for that hard-to-shop-for friend who has everything -- except a limited edition artwork by artist PAUL CHAN? (It’s entirely acceptable if that friend is you. It’s the holidays after all... what have you done for you lately?)
- Make a contribution of $300 to Rhizome’s Community Campaign this week and we will send you Chan’s SADE FOR FONTS SAKE (2010), a CD rom containing 21 truetype fonts and a limited edition signed print that demonstrates the font. And you’ll receive it in time for the holidays!
Expanded Artwork Information: For nearly ten years, Paul Chan has been exploring the aesthetic, interactive, and philosophical potentials of computer fonts. As a complement to Sade for Sade’s Sake, his monumental digital projection inspired by the work of novelist and philosopher, Marquis de Sade, Chan has created a set of 21 truetype fonts that transform the act of typing into a generative Sadean performance. Unlike conventional fonts like Arial or Comic Sans, Chan’s fonts are comprised of phrases and sentence fragments rather than letters and other alphanumeric characters, so that what is typed on the keyboard is not what shows up on the screen, or what is printed on paper. Each font holds a unique set of idioms that expresses a different sexual voice when typed. The special limited edition print demonstrates the range of the fonts.
- We really hope you enjoy our programs as much as we love making them happen for you -- but we can’t do it alone! We rely on the generosity of our community to provide a significant portion of our budget, so please support Rhizome and renew your membership today and be sure to check out the rest of our the artworks and editions available during our Campaign by the Yes Men, Michael Smith, Brody Condon, and more.
