TfLThe Twitter Machine

KK Outlet was commissioned by TfL to organise their Language of London exhibition, as part of the centenary of the famous Johnston typeface.

Given the democratic nature of the Johnston font, KK Outlet in turn commissioned Florian Dussopt to create a bespoke Twitter Machine, thereby involving as many Londoners as possible in the show.

This specially designed lo-fi printing press printed all tweets featuring #dearlondon live in the KK Outlet gallery.
From Tottenham to Tokyo, hundreds of tweets were collated and printed during the course of the show.
