Bob Dylan + tipografia digitale: un’opera d’arte 2.0

Siti artistici

Se siete appassionati di Bob Dylan gradirete. Ma per gradire proprio tanto, dovete essere appassionati di Bob Dylan e di tipografia, magari con una particolare predilezione per il font Garamond. Il sito a cui stiamo per mandarvi è in realtà un’opera d’arte 2.0 di Evan Roth, un artista americano nato nel 1978 e attivo a Parigi, che crea stampe, sculture, video e – appunto – siti web artistici (qui potete saperne di più su di lui). In questo caso ha utilizzato come un pennello le lettere (in font Garamond di varie dimensioni) della canzone Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right di Bob Dylan, seguendo il ritmo della musica nel disegnare. Ecco il risultato: http://www.ni9e.com/typo/typo_dylan.html

Il testo della canzone:

It ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don’t matter, anyhow
An’ it ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don’t know by now
When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I’ll be gone
You’re the reason I’m trav’lin’ on
Don’t think twice, it’s all right

It ain’t no use in turnin’ on your light, babe
That light I never knowed
An’ it ain’t no use in turnin’ on your light, babe
I’m on the dark side of the road
Still I wish there was somethin’ you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
We never did too much talkin’ anyway
So don’t think twice, it’s all right

It ain’t no use in callin’ out my name, gal
Like you never did before
It ain’t no use in callin’ out my name, gal
I can’t hear you anymore
I’m a-thinkin’ and a-wond’rin’ all the way down the road
I once loved a woman, a child I’m told
I give her my heart but she wanted my soul
But don’t think twice, it’s all right

I’m walkin’ down that long, lonesome road, babe
Where I’m bound, I can’t tell
But goodbye’s too good a word, gal
So I’ll just say fare thee well
I ain’t sayin’ you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don’t mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don’t think twice, it’s all right
