2016 – Poetry & Text, Printed Matter

A column about boredom, written for Issue° 1, Speculating Systems’, Sandberg Design Department.

 

Boredom is a phenomenon that is constantly present in our society, but often remains concealed.

    Everyone deals with it, but at the same time it seems impossible to exist within our system- and work based society. How do we feel when we are bored? What kind of actions do we consider while being bored?
Can we look at boredom as a taboo of the 21th century?

 

Speculating Systems is designed by Daniel Seemayer and Andrea Karch.

A Religion, La Mafia

2014 – Identity, Printed Matter, Script Writing

A fictional identity for the Italian
Mafia. But how to design a secret
and hidden identity? How to design
an identity if nothing can be visual?

    The answer is an identity that is
based on verbal communication
and gestures.

    A chain of Italian restaurants
serves as cover-up. Members of
the Mafia communicate based on
the act of speaking, eating and of
ordering food. The menu serves
as the identity manual.

New(s)paper

2013 – Printed Matter

The encryption of a new(s)paper. 

    All of the articles are designed as linguistic games, that are linked to the content of the articles. Articles can be interpreted in different ways, as text —even when in a newspaper— is never 100% clear.

    The format of this new(s)paper is an endless loop, the news keeps on producing itself regardless the ends of the pages.
