“Ur motståndet skapas nya former”



Konstfack - University of art craft and design



Exhibition project



 07-13.05.2022


I have examined the visual experiences of reading with dyslexia. Through interviews and research have I developed new letterforms and fonts based on the different experiences. My aim is to show the visions we dyslexics get and highlight the many positive aspects of being dyslexic. The mind's small misconceptions create new stories and forms that did not exist there before. Open up for a more playful, experimental and diverse world of letterforms.

Being dyslexic makes it difficult to decode text in different ways, as the mind spins the sentences around. Makes the content more difficult to understand. Different individuals with dyslexia experience these difficulties in different ways. Some experience that the words shrink, others that the black ink on the page thickens, the words become blurred, the mind invents new shapes and movements.  “Narrative and dynamic thinking. Dyslexics often develop predisposition for valuable abilities, the challenges they have are a consequence of a different brain structure. These strengths result in abilities such as being able to think three-dimensionally, see creative connections, create stories and predict scenarios.” – Fernette F. Eide & Brock L. Eide (2012) The dyslexic advantage : unlocking the hidden potential of the dyslexic brain.

Numbers, letters, days of the week - or other linguistic units included in a sequence - are linked to colors." - Karolinska Institutet / Research / Neuroscience and mental health
