"MobileTypefaces" is a video art work created on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of DMAV in 2020. The project was born from the printing of the book Terraforma, which tells the stories and projects of the collective. Inside the volume there is an artist proof created during the performance in which Marzia Nobile of DMAV meets the Heidelberg printing machines of the 1950s. The creation of this artist proof was so powerful that we wanted to translate it with the language of video art.
We have interpreted the printing process in an extremely physical way, letting the body enter the book, which becomes tangible in the physicality of the volume that contains the skin imprint of Marzia's body, immersed in the color of a typographic print.
The work is signed for DMAV by Nobile, Rinaldi, Centonze, Ladini.
