Making Democracy Legible: A Defiant Typeface — The Gradient — Walker Art Center
An anti-OCR typeface to defeat surveillance measures, as an artistic expression anyways. Well, except by making this really public people will now a; build OCR software specific to ZXX glyphs b; build OCR software such that if it detects ZXX type glyphs, spin it around to a human for final judgement as an item of interest c; think this actually protects them in some way and use it poorly. Maybe if it was a postscript font that dynamically resize and obscure letters on the fly, it might have better resistance.
