the alfabyte, a continuation of the NKdeE Schoonschrift, is a series of graphical representations of a selection of Unicode covering most of the Latin and the Cyrillic alphabets. it is being executed in dedication to Velimir Chlebnikov and for the love of my Light. if the reddish shape is perceived as being in front of the blueish it’s a zero, otherwise a one.
the whole sequence is to be read as a cinematographic (phased) view of the movement made by (one of) the sound(s) that is being coded by the letter, slowed down to execution time (paint-time), sort of like the flight of a large bird across a vast steppe, taking snapshots each 300 feet.
