That link needs sometime to read before I write a comment there, and that will happen later. But from a fast reading there I can tell you have made some appreciated effort to solve some of the problem, Mr.Aziz. What about Shawkash's calligraphy and your capture of that small movie any way. I hope nothing wrong with it :-)

It is also appreciated you have noticed that; most of it's veiwers at that community didn't say anything about the flower. And from the short time chance of reading your messages here, allow me to describe you as someone in love with all world flowers.

Maybe not art, but a building. I'm pretty sure it says something.

It's a hotel in Cairo.

One of my favourite pieces of 'type as art' is the video for Alex Gopher's 'The Child' video.

Watching something so intricate at low quality on a tiny screen size doesn't do it justice, it's really worth a look at in full-quality if you ever get the chance.

>Who is that Hero? Shy?

Aziz, deleted - is part of a series I'm working on which speaks of the destruction, deconstruction and reconstruction of the written word. It may appear stupidly simple - but it ain't.

This is a great thread, nice question stephen - I see some familiar names who have/do inspire me, and some new ones too.

a little avant-weird, but Jan Svankmajer's films make rather extensive use of typography in fairly unprecedented ways..

I don't know if you classify this as art, but it's brilliant stuff.

One of my favorites is the Italian futurist Fortunato DePero whose work you can see, at among other places, here.

Our ampersand poster could be considered an art project. » Contains video «

No apologies for the blatant self-promotion.

Last week I saw Marian Bantjes presentation at the TDC.

Her work is not only wonderfully imaginative and artistically superb, but it just makes you feel happier, like the old Beatles music. A rare treasure and pleasure.

I say this periodically: Bantjes is the messiah of PoMo.
So unlike the hooligans of the 90s.
