Don't quote me on this, but I recall reading awhile back that future generations are at risk of a total phenomenon in human behaviour. Due to the rise of interacting with technology - laptops, phones, what have you - the people of tomorrow may actually end up having better writing and reading skills then verbally; it's kind of terrifying that we already pass each other by hunched over glowing screens, so a world of that and confused groaning will truly be the dystopian hellscape as imagined by some shitty sci-fi author.
But by writing, what we're talking about is tapping out messages letter by letter. My handwriting is frankly an embarrassment, so I'm ambivalent about Helvetica being my scrawl. I don't think Baltimore graphic design student Jean Gray feels the same, as she's created this zine that attempts writing with different parts of the body, to various degrees of success. It's an intriguing idea - how could we cope without this long held function? - well executed, check it out.
