Perceptual Shift Ambigrams

March, 2016

Experiment in creating perceptual shift ambigrams, words that can be read as two different words depending on how the shape of the letters is interpereted.

Created 1200+ hand-drawn glyphs combining 2 or more letters (e.g T+F, ls+u), and coded a small web interface in which you can input your own words for it to merge. Make your own perceptual shift ambigrams! (broken; database lost)

Some examples:

Example #1: True, False
Example #2: hot, cold
