Specter

(2021)





Typeface created by training StyleGAN2 model on oracle bone inscriptions (甲骨文)

This typeface was created in collaboration with machine learning. After training a StyleGAN2 model with images of oracle bone characters, I selected the most compelling images that the model generated. These curated characters were then arranged in a type specimen. The name "Specter" references the ghostly and ephemeral quality of these machine inscriptions.
