light calligraphy

French artist Julien Breton has fused urban graffiti with an appreciation for Western philosophy, expanding the aesthetics of light-painting with deft photon calligraphy. A student of Latin and Arabic lettering, the Nantes native has merged iconography, creating a modern alphabet perfect for long exposure tagging of trees, building interiors and city centers. To form the stylized glyphs, Breton has to become part choreographer and art director to write — literally — in space. [via behance]
