Visual Language: The Nature of Typography & Literature

Visual Language: The Nature of Typography & Literature

ArtLab Gallery
Curated by Sasha Minsky
August 20 - September 20, 2018

Closing Reception and Poetry Readings - Thursday, September 13, 5 -7pm

In this collaborative experience, typographers in Sasha Minsky’s “Principles of Typography” course responded to Haikus and Sentences developed by the student authors of Jesse Millner’s “Introduction to Nature Writing” course.  These Haikus, inspired by nature, provided a starting point for emerging typographers to develop installation typography in the forms of digital media, mixed media, and experiential installations involving light and shadow. Individuals will have the opportunity to experience this innovative ecosystem, which emerged from this unique cross-collaboration.
