Reformation of 50,000 Letters is a resurrection of letterforms and digital afterlife. Forms are the result of a neural network trained over a million instances on world letterforms, many extinct, to examine the potential of post-human memory under colonialism. They are in a constant state of becoming, not yet manifested in reality, producing new and aesthetic modes of thinking and making, speaking and power.
