Oded Ezer

Typographer Oded Ezer  challenges the norms and pushes the borders of what typography is, he combines the human form/ aspects of it with type to create works such as “typosperma” a combination of sperm cells and typographical figures and “typoplastic” in which he attached letterforms to his body. Taking inspiration from people like John Heartfield (most famous for photomontage) it is easy to see where Ezer has formed these ideas of type/human hybrids.

“Oded creates a form of new transgenic living creatures which are half-human sperm and half-letter by implanting typographic information into the DNA of cloned sperm cells.”
