poster for dʒi dʒi dʒi Dainippon Type Organization

This event has ended.

Dainippon Type Organization was formed in 1993 by two young men: Hidechika, the one with a beard and without a surname, and Tetsuya Tsukada, the one with a surname and without a beard. As a team they probe new concepts and new possibilities in writing systems through their ongoing experiments in disarticulating, combining and reconfiguring Japanese characters, the two Japanese phonetic alphabets, and letters of the English alphabet. The result is an exhibition literally filled with dʒi of every kind imaginable. The two partners in Dainippon Type Organization have been playing with writing systems for 22 years, and here the collective results of their escapades with dʒi will be on view for all to marvel at. Visitors are sure to come away with a newfound sense of the fun and profoundness of dʒi. “ggg Books-117 Dainippon Type Organization” will be published in tandem with the exhibition.
