This workshop, conducted in collaboration with Prof. Doris Sommer, departed from a short story of Jorge Luis Borges, about the countless interpretations of a text. The one we chose to explore here was the typographical translation of a fragment using mobile typefaces. A technique widely used in the past, nowadays on the verge of extinction. The students not only printed their own posters, but they went into the streets, placing this prints on the neighborhood as an exercise to provide a spatial dimension to the written word.
