In 2004 artist Ann Hamilton created a reference to traditional typographic technology in her wood floor project for the downtown branch of the Seattle Public Library. Library visitors walk over the first sentences of books in 11 languages, routed (backward-reading) from the floorboards. At the time, there weren’t too many people in the United States with expertise in setting right-to-left languages such as Arabic with output as an EPS file. Somehow Ann Hamilton’s studio found me and asked me to set a few lines of type for them in Arabic and send them an EPS. So now my work is forever inscribed on the SPL floor!
