Yeohyun Ahn presents a series of generative typography as self-portraits, which convey her response to her sense of invisibility as a woman of color. Ahn started this project in 2015 to raise awareness of Asian female faculty being isolated and marginalized in a predominantly white institution of America. Ahn’s work uses diverse typefaces to convey feelings and thoughts, and shows possibilities for using the personality of each typeface for expressive and visually appealing generative selfies.
