Ebon Heath is a talented wordsmith, but not by the typical definition. The master of words creates laser-cut sculptures that bring life to letters that are otherwise stagnant on a page. Living and working between Brooklyn, Bali, and Berlin, the graphic designer and art director is also well versed in sculptures, mobiles, and photography. His typography sculptures are a magical transformation of the written word into what he describes as a “new language of physical type.” He liberates the letters from the printed page and gives them a three-dimensional existence with which viewers can interact.
