thomas bernard is a paris based graphic designer is also a member of the graphic collective think experimental. his work experiments with type and graphics in a variety of interactive ways. 'dancekarpet' is a project which u ses a 'twister' like floor interface which corresponds to a 1:1 scale screen made from light boxes. when the user dances or moves on the floor the screen in front lights up the appropriate pixel. other projects include 'mutinerie' a notebook with deceiving lines on the inside. his 'polygraph system' uses a 3d box to create different letters forms depending on the viewer's angle. similarly he has also designed a number of small letter forms that combine multiple 2d letters into a three dimensional form called 'typographies anamorphotiques'.
