Chainlink fences are everywhere, and their ubiquity is what drove Kim Dong Hyun to create Fence Typo. If you can look at a chainlink fence and see a canvas (instead of a wire monstrosity) then the urban landscape isn't so bad.

Fence Typo is made of small plastic pieces, some colored and some neon, that can be attached to chainlink fences to create words and designs. Take a look at the gallery for some examples.

Implications - While fences are often a cold and uninviting means of putting up boundaries for either protection or landscaping, these fences are an opportunity for artistic expression, serving as a unique canvas.
