The two-dimensional writing systems (what normally human-beings are using) consist of one-dimensional material, line. The one-dimensional writing systems (for example, Quipu) use zero-dimensional material, point. The three-dimensional writing should be based on two-dimensional material, surface.
This 3D writing system has 37 characters which are combinations of 11 components.
Web Application: Three Words in 3D Characters
3D interactive web application (WebGL). This application works on almost all platforms but not very comfortable with mobile. Use arrow keys or buttons on the screen for the interaction.
The sounds of reading the words are attached on the three words negatively. It means if you move closer to the words, the sound of the reading will become quieter; if you move further away, it will become louder.

Exhibition of found or stolen drawings and performance
Presented at: “The Voice Observatory” – Errant Bodies Berlin, 8-14 March 2015
Between 2013 and 2014 the artists have collected a huge amount of pen test writing paper sheets in stationary shops all around the world, fascinated by the variety of drawn lines and written words, as if they would contain sound and movement. They are objets trouvés or objets volés that are recontextualized as graphic score and visual poetry. These paper sheets represent anonymous traces of unconscious/conscious writing. Their use is just for testing pens and most of the time people don’t intend to express anything at all. But the diverse figures express sometimes public/private statements and in some cases they even reveal deep emotions. They are approximations of letters, like “pre-letter”, furthermore they can be read as signs that refer to a linguistic and cultural background. There can be found some characteristic aspects in each country which reflect the socially constructed physicality of writing.
Tomomi Adachi and Alessandra Eramo show an installation of several hundreds of paper sheets and they create a musical and poetical vocal performance interpreting a selection of drawings.
