Takayuki Ogawa's 3D Oral AlphabetJuxtapoz // Friday, 25 Jul 2014
Horrific, eerie, frightening, and strange Takayuki Ogawa freezes the alphabet in time with oral expressions as three dimensional clay moldings. Oral:phabet is grotesquely and disturbingly realistic displaying mouths, teeth, lips, and tongues but revolving around the portrayal of each letter uniquely. Ogawa designed the English alphabet with inspiration from emotions, as was the motivation for his graduating thesis from Tama Art University. He says, “In email we use the letter D to create the smiling emoticon :D. But what if we gave similar attributes to letters like B or N which are never used as expression forms?” Time to get creative and figure that out on our keyboards.
