These pieces explore the linguistic potentiality of mathematical functions, to build formulas whose plots resemble writings or other verbal objects (such as seals or logos): for this purpose, the native LaTex environment for scientific typesetting has been exploited to manipulate functions while simultaneously editing a print-ready asemic handbook.
This blend of Mathematics with writing aims at addressing writing/drawing from an unexplored perspective and testing an entirely new concept of book, one which is not written but coded, living and dynamic, eventually ready to interact with the surrounding environment by means of sensors, to adapt and change its content.
