Aaron Keuhn Skeleton Typogram detail

Aaron Kuehn is a typographical manipulator who’s latest piece takes on the human skeleton in an easily digestible format.

From Kuehn,

“Exo… Endo… Typo! Your life, your organism, your soft tissues but a puddle on the ground, if not for the ancient segmental structure of the Vertebrates. The original hard core is evolving for 400 million years now. Hominids, like you, are using the latest upright technology originating only 4 million years prior. Here it is, updated, and reconstructed in a 2 dimensional static representation of long-stride locomotion for your screen or paper! The component bones, ordinarily constructed with rigid mineralized tissues, have been entirely typo-grammatically replaced with 676 free and fused glyphs, together forming a complete skeletal diagram in Latin.”

  1. You know what would be really cool? If it was possible to do this typogram in other languages too. It’s easy for me to remember where what is in my own languages, but when I talk to patients who don’t understand English, it becomes tough.
    Superb work, though!
