Experimenting with the boundary between image and type. Exploring the interchange between recognition and perception.
"A" has never been so happy.
I'm taking an Experimental Sound Lab class taught by Chris Kallmyer during my grad studies at CCA this semester. It's been incredible. On Monday, we're hosting a Listening Party & Experimental Sound Performance event, so naturally, a poster needed to be designed.
I've been struggling lately with how my thesis studies can fit back into the world of design, but it seems they may have found a place. Along with my cohort, Margherita Buzzi, I designed a series of posters for the Listening Party event. Thrilling.
The set of observable characteristics of an individual resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment.
What happens when you explore type and shadow (ala Lazlo Maholy-Nagy) over time? Crazy things happen.
When an object is removed from its familiar state and re-contextualized, our mind allows us the freedom to re-examine and approach the object in ways we may not have imagined.
It can be difficult to remove some things — particularly text — from their context without completely losing the meaning. However, if individual letterforms are removed, re-imagined, and then fed back into their previous context, is the original meaning lost and a new interpretation created? Is the essence of the original context still relevant?
Using letterforms as my subject, I’ve taken them through a series of processes using laser light, and moving back and forth between video, two, and three dimensions in an attempt to re-contextualize and re-interpret these letterforms.
