Visual Letter Tricks
Silvia Baz has some very interesting visual projects, like this one called Typeworks, a set of black and white alphabetical prints. At close distance the letter designs are hard to see, but become more visible when standing far away. The prints convey the fundamental aspects of visual communication, or the use of basic graphic elements to describe visual patterns. The alphabetical prints, made with various sized black dots, were inspired by this quote from Goethe, “The hardest thing to see is what is in front of your eyes.” I love how Silvia's graphic prowess stimulates our visual senses, all with simple dots!
Prints they are available on the Typeworks website. All prints are 297mm x 420mm (A3) in size, printed on Mohawk Superfine White Eggshell 270 gsm, a smooth, uncoated environmentally friendly paper and are hand-signed by the artist.
