Deformation of 50,000 Letters is a resurrection of letterforms and digital afterlife. Forms are the result of a neural network trained over a million instances on world letterforms, some extinct, to examine the potential of posthuman memory under colonialism. They are in a constant state of becoming to produce new epistemologies of knowing, making, and power.
