Derivation of “Omphatyp”:
◾[Ompha] – from Omphalos, the centre, the belly, where until umbilically cut, we have home. Belly, also suggesting “gut reaction”.
◾[Typ] – from Typos, a blow, impression, image or figure. Where words and numbers have an equal place in understanding. And where words and numbers can be re-arranged. “Concrete poetry” was noted for the spatial placement of the words and numbers. This intrinsic typography was developed as an art-form by Ian Hamilton Finlay who has been an inspiration to me. Omphatyps challenge the separation of the
Arts and Sciences. And why only two?
