Biotypography part 2: Typosperma

Created by Oded Ezer, Typosperma
is the second experimental typo project in his 'Biotypography' series.

The first was blogged about all over the place.. Ezer turned 3D type into insect like creatures. (see below..)

As a paraphrase on the biotechnology definition, 'Biotypography' is a term that refers to any typographical application that uses biological systems, living organisms, or derivatives thereof, to create or modify typographical phenomena.

The main idea of the 'Typosperma' project was to create some sort of new transgenic creatures, half (human) sperm, half letter. These imaginary creatures are cloned sperms, that typographic information has been implanted into their DNA.
