Slanted in L.A.: Rob Carmichael / SEEN

In a town like L.A. and on a production like Slanted’s, which brings together the material for a magazine, not everything has to work out.

DO YOU READ ME? & Buchhandlungen

DO YOU READ ME? Bookshops are not the only places where books are sold. They are places of togetherness in a neighborhood and often the first port of call for travelers who want to explore a city. Bookstores invite you to linger, to readings, concerts and parties; always with the aim of bringing together people who are thirsty for knowledge and curious and to make friends with strangers. The shops themselves are as different as their owners. There are small bookshops where books are stacked up to the… weiterlesen

A Shift in Perspective

The discipline of visual communication, similar to many others, underlies a great deal of pressure, as it involves a high need for surprising, unconventional ideas: creative solutions. A Shift in Perspective: An Investigation into Creativity from Constraint examines not only whether or how one can influence creativity but also whether constraints can promote the creative process. Furthermore, since creation is often associated with freedom, this thesis intends to change how the creative process is… weiterlesen

Shape Grammars

How can unique pieces be mass produced? Or: How can the computer take over and support creative work? Sol LeWitt writes in his Sentences on Conceptual Art: „The idea becomes a machine that makes the art. […] There are many side effects that the artist cannot imagine. These may be used as ideas for new works.“ A form is removed from the status of pure art as soon as it is filled with unambiguous information or applied utility. Its poetic function as art is thus weakened, its practical function as design is… weiterlesen

George Hardie Exhibition

At a dinner party some years ago a fellow guest asked George Hardie what he did for a living. The acclaimed English Illustrator, Professor of Graphic Design, replied, „I’m an illustrator, designer, and teacher.“ Unsatisfied, his table mate pressed, „No, what do you really do?“ Hardie is an unflaggingly polite, but most of all, modest, English gentleman. So, after a lengthy pause he responded, „I notice things and I get things noticed,“ a fairly unassuming assessment of a five-decade-old career as, he semi… weiterlesen
