Barbed wire typeface

Fellow SUNfilterer Perrin Drumm’s recent write up about the MoMA’s acquisition of some typefaces reminded me to post about artist Andrew Effendy’s piece “The Devil’s Rope/Type.” Shaped to look like “sinister” barbed wire, the artist “makes you mull over the role of language and how—especially, in today’s world of information overload—language has the power to encourage progress as well as impede it.”
