Description
Patterns made from Breatharian, my ornamental typeface made of 62 individual characters. The character set is designed in such a way, that if you keep typing without adding a space, the images will keep building on top of one another. While Breatharian allows for the ornaments to interact with one another in surprising ways, it also reconsiders the image-making process by using typing alone as an image-making tool.

The form of the ornaments are inspired by a fringe cult group of the same name who claim to survive on air alone. In use, the system as a whole is meant to have slightly hallucinogenic and dizzying properties, suggestive of the experience of each Breatharian member.
