digital ink

My inspiration for this project came from a calligraphy workshop with Martin Jackson. We're learning calligraphy foundations and practiced Old Basic Italian script. It's really fascinating to see how ink pen flows on a paper following the same directions for centuries. In my experiment, I used a different media submerging free-flow ink in water and finding Old Basic Italian letterforms in its momentum shapes.
