Fact / Fiction, ambigram

by | Friday, May 29, 2009

Yesterday after I had posted my two latest ambigrams (see them here) I got a message on Facebook from my cousin Sonny (the one who composed the cool music for my Explore, Create videos) saying

Not to be outdone by a good put-down… I created an ambigram that really makes “fact” and “fiction” blur together… Check it out


So does this read “Fact” or “Fiction”? Or is it neither, and actually reads “Faction?” Hmm…

A few randomly selected blog posts…

Koehler, Mishra & Yahya 2007

Koehler, Mishra & Yahya (2007) is an important paper in the TPACK related work for a range of reasons. The research captured in this paper actually predates the TCRecord (Mishra & Koehler, 2006) article, but the vagaries of publishing and journal waiting-lists...

    Very nice one. Its somehow very different and original too. Given the fake controversy, I suggest that it actually reads Friction.
