4D Type, 2011 by Lo Siento from Spain
“4D Typography is the result of intersectioning, in an orthogonal way in space, two extrusions of the same character, which allows the spectator to read it from, minimum, two different positions in space.
An observer searching to enjoy a particular architecture, is forced to move around and through it. The change in perspective generates new spaces in which light acts in different ways. In this case, it is the typography who makes the effort of abandoning its two dimensions to approach the architectural sense. It does not resign with a third dimension; a fourth one is necessary to complete the reading possibilities. By hanging the typography, the reader is allowed to surround the characters in order to understand all their shapes.”
Das Schulwandbild von gestern — Eine nicht ganz vollständige Sammlung, 2011 by Esther Rieser from Switzerland
“Das Schulwandbild von gestern — Eine nicht ganz vollständige Sammlung». This small booklet is divided into three parts: A is theory, B is picture and C is archive. It is held together solely by a rubber band, suggesting incompleteness and allowing the content to be supplemented with new pages. The design on the cover is a reference to the old jackets of school books.”
Censorship Daily, 2012 by Jan Dirk van deer Burg of Cobbenhagen Hendriksen from Netherlands
“This publication shows a selection of censored images from NRC Handelsblad that Jan Dirk van den Burg collected from his friend Thomas Erdbrink in Iran (2007-2012). When the sealed newspapers land on his doormat in Tehran, its contents have already been secretly checked by the Iranian authorities. Forbidden items used to be carefully suppressed using scissors, a ruler and blue stickers.
The act of censoring with the thick blue stickers brings new aesthetics to the images. Intrigued by Jan Dirks collection, we teamed up to select the best examples of censorship to bring them together in a very fine printed publication. For the cover we used the leftovers to emphasize the autonomous and ornamental quality the sticker brings into the daily news.”
