We now know that 24 hours without sleep, or a week of sleeping four or five hours a night induces an impairment equivalent to a blood alcohol level of .1 percent. We would never say, ‘This person is a great worker! He’s drunk all the time!’ yet we continue to celebrate people who sacrifice sleep for work.

The prediction I can make with the highest confidence is that the most amazing discoveries will be the ones we are not today wise enough to foresee.

Kinecdysis (Grapheme)

An animated font put together by sougwen:

Kinecdysis (Grapheme) is inspired by the motif of ecdysis (from Ancient Greek: ἐκδύω, ekduo, to take off, strip off).
At the epilogue of transformation, what remains? Ecdysis is the process of shedding or casting off the exoskeleton in invertebrate organisms. As a metaphor for writing, it is in equal parts an assemblage, homage and exorcism of the self in all its prior iterations. It is the verbal vestige that forms the story of our private ecdysis… within it, the narratives that contain the modicum of our memory.
You can try typing out some lines at the Kinecdysis site here
You can find out more about the project here
A Tumblr blog featuring the entire font in animated form can be found here
