AFETUS DISPLAY


CATEGORY: Type Design
DATE:  09/21


Afetus is inspired by a poem by the Polish poet Anna Swir (1909–1984), and in it she is speaking to her infant daughter: 
“You are not going to defeat me,” I say
“I won’t be an egg which you would crack
in a hurry for the world,
a footbridge that you would take on the way to your life.
I will defend myself.”
Anna struggled for many years and found it hard to forget how painful childbirth and pregnancy had been for her. The idea of a struggle between the mother and her newborn child falls outside the grand narrative of human experience. Rather, the marginalized part is the violence of unborn baby that exert to mother’s body from its inside. The typeface attempts to visualize the marginal motherhood. The glyphs are shaped to mimic the fetus' huddled position in the mother's body, while the sword-like strokes metaphorically threaten from the inside out. Together the typeface meant to imply the domestic violence and struggling of motherhood.
