          Abstract

          Language is a way of human communication. Visual language is a system of communication using visual elements. It is a visual representation of the written language. Tangible TYPE + CODE is a collaboration with two distinctive projects, the TYPE + CODE series, by Yeohyun Ahn, and Tangible Type, by Taekyeom Lee. The TYPE + CODE series explores the expressive aesthetic of computational typography. Tangible Type extends typography to perceptible typography with physical touch, which is one of the human senses, by using digital fabrication. It suggests another linguistic experience beyond spoken, written, and visual languages. The design process accomplishes artistic expression, construction technique, and materiality. It results in expressive, dimensional, textural, and touchable types. Tangible Type + CODE enhances the direct experiences of typography from written and visual communication to tangible communication by computation and digital fabrication. It is applicable as a learning tool for children to acquire a written language through a form play that is engaging, playable, and touchable.
