Movimento Tipográfico

[Typographic Movement], 2013

The urban landscape sets the scene for break dancing, a street dance style that makes up the hip-hop culture, together with graffiti and rap music. In this project, Caio Yuzo appropriates the typical movements of this artistic expression to video-record the 26 letters of the alphabet made with his own body. In addition to the film, the collective also produced wheatpaste posters with the letters formed by the choreography. Displayed in downtown Sao Paulo, the posters drew the attention to a QR code that would take the viewer to the video’s webpage. Contributions from: Georges Boris, Bruno Zaitsu, Lina Nagano and Susie Fugii.
