The alphabet made with rubber bands

Trying to come up with an idea of an experimental typeface, I was thinking that either I want to do something performative, time-based or moving. A really simple, starting point idea came to me, to try and make each letter with rubber bands – not that something similar hasn’t been created before, but I tried to make them with my two hands. I tried it with a second person too, but that gets easier! It could also be developed as a performance with a lot of people, maybe having a massive rubber band and people create this. Or a little machine could be created that can create this on its own? I’m thinking too big now.

IN ANY WAY, this does not invent a new language, as I’m using the alphabet as it is – I’m not creating a new one, although this is a good play I had and I think I should include this here – maybe something else can be developed out of it.

Pictures of me trying to make the letters:
