type reproduces itself

According to Austrian illustrator Birgit Palma’s entry on Behance: Initial idea was a type, which reproduces itself. Machine letters, mixed up with human elements procreativn themselves. Reproduction is the biological process by which new “offspring” individual organisms are produced from their “parents”. Reproduction is a fundamental feature of all known life; each individual organism exists as the result of reproduction.

While the grammar provided by the artist needs a little tweaking, the idea behind these letterforms and numerals is fascinating. You can see more of Birgit’s work here.
