Jelte Van Abbema’s Virtureal project features work that expresses emotion digitally as well as through deteriorating materials. Van Abbema, who is the winner of the Rado Prize at the Dutch Design Awards in Eindhoven, created fonts out of shriveling leaves and dissolving sugar.

According to Dezeen, Van Abbema also attached sensors to an old-fashioned mechanical typewriter so that words appearing on a computer screen varied in intensity according to how hard the keys were struck.
