WHAT IS DELTA_GLYPH:

Delta_Glyph does solarpunk-informed identity design for groups that adopt solidarity economy principles.

The solarpunk science fiction sub-genre renders positive futures that could emerge from the contemporary triple-crisis of climate change, inequality and nation-state dysfunction.

The solidarity economy is a coalition of groups seeking to enact new forms of local ecological stewardship, cooperative ownership, and decentralized technology in order to navigate us out of the above crises.

Delta_Glyph interviews members of these groups, scrapes data from their feeds, then remixes this information into poetic prose that is light-projected alongside a custom-built animated logo.

These literature-heavy logos inform outsiders about the group’s identity and values, while also providing an in-depth description of what it is like to engage with their practices.

Delta_Glyph has created work on behalf of Occupy ProvidenceBuilding #13 Squat in Rhode Island, the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project,Biome ArtsWetland, and Swale.
