Space Type Generator

Kiel Mutschelknaus’s constantly evolving Space Type Generator has the power to hypnotise [EXTRACT]

The passage of time is an elusive, slippery phenomenon while operating Kiel Mutschelknaus’s Space Type Generator (STG), where typographic messages undulate endlessly, morphing spectacularly to the whims of your absent-minded desires. In very plain terms, STG is ‘a series of tools that allows users to create forms out of type’, but as experienced, it is something else entirely. Seconds pass, then minutes, even hours, as its powerfully hypnotic effects take hold.
