Typeface created for Manifold Reality, an exhibition that explores compactification of hidden dimensions. This project is based on String Theory which proposes that universe may embody more than four dimensions. The additional dimensions are compactified and are so tiny they are curled up inside each other. With an 'O' replaced by Calabi-Yau Manifold, mathematical interpretation of hidden dimensions, each characters are curled-up into counter and stem to visualize how alphabets look like in hidden dimensions.
