Try Reading Without The Silent Letters

Norway-based interaction designerr Kenneth Aleksander Robertson has decided to attempt reading while taking away the silent alphabets.

“How much of a language is silent? What does it look like when you take the silence out?” These were the questions raised by Robertson.

Titled ‘Silenc’, Robertson marked the silent letters in red from a selection of Hans Christian Anderson stories in Danish, French and English.

These red letters will become invisible when viewed through a filter, allowing a new perspective of reading.
