All text on screen is on bitmap. Then, how does bitmap affect the appearance of letters? In this curiosity, we visualized how text changes on bitmaps of various scales. Users can write text directly on this page and manipulate fonts, sizes, color, and pixel sizes in real time and download as image(jpg).

To implement this artwork, we used paper.js to analyze text written in common Google Web fonts, and visualized in vector(svg) using two.js.
