The book borrows its structure from a classic manual. Ai Weiwei’s process is set in a narrative strand. Step by step, the reader is guided through the creation, manual and the subsequent reflection of the artwork. Through its linear narrative style, the art and working method become accessible and the viewer is directly involved in the project. Visually, existing manual elements are quoted and embedded in an art book context. The varnished «picture panels» are numbered in a way that is familiar from instruction manuals. In addition, material lists are combined with art photographs to emphasize the intertwining of the artwork and its building instruction.

  • Dumais Regular

Roy Bosier - a ballet dancer, fashion and costume designer, clown, pantomime artist, movement trainer, teacher, actor, choreographer, father and physiotherapist. The diversity of his life is also reflected in his rich private archive. A participatory publication engages the readers to get involved in the editing process. Gradually, the private archive of the portrayed is thereby enriched with anecdotes.

EPFL Experimental Zone

Data orbit epfl artlab plakat 01

Data orbit epfl artlab plakat 02

The Kengos Experimental Zone EPFL considers itself as a pioneering exhibition space at the intersection of art and technology. Everything that happens within its walls is new, loud and "dangerous" for established structures. The design embraces this approach by using the visual language of warning and road signs to communicate these values. By layering the graphic elements we create a toolset to specifically respond to its changing content. This results in an interpretative signage for each exhibition.

«HOWTO» Exhibition

In their exhibition «HOWTO», the Sitterwerk explores the production processes of instructional videos. The visual identity focuses on the linearity of such videos. In analogy to these linear processes, the content is arranged in sequences – moving objects become static whilst the medium of the videos is emphasised.

CARAVAN 1/20 with Dominic Michel, exhibition signage

The challenge of creating advertising materials for the “Caravan” exhibition series at the Aargauer Kunsthaus consists of communicating an unfinished exhibition. For our concept, we use the artist’s work approaches, fragments of inspiration and thoughts. Thus the flyer becomes a preview of the artist’s idea and acts as a link between art, artist and viewer. The design refers to the classic exchange of letters and the working mechanism of a folder.

Bricolage

Data orbit bricolage1
Data orbit bricolage2

Based on a poster sketch by the artists, we designed a communication and signage concept for the “Bricolage” exhibition in the Historical and Ethnological Museum of St.Gallen. The design uses the workings of bricolage (solving problems with the available resources). So, instead of working out the existing collage, we decided to make a poster series out of the layer masks of the corresponding Photoshop file. It refers to the working methods of the artist team, which referred to the exhibited masks from the archives of the museum. This mechanism of unmasking shapes the overall design.

Geschichte des Rheintals

As namesake for the region, the Rhine is fed from the inflows of the numerous tributaries and village streams. Thus, we understand the book as an overall current which receives its strength and accessibility through the inflow of imagery, navigation elements and types of text. The book draft can be captured from beginning to end as well as fragmentarily. This is made possible by an alternative navigation and linking system which makes the various contents accessible in temporal, geographical and thematic order.

Our concept for the new appearance of the graduation show deals with the moment of transition, the start of a new chapter. We consider the university diploma as a «ticket to the future». Therefore, we refer to elements of ticket design systematically and visually and develop a variable design concept.

CARAVAN On The Road

Data orbit CARAVAN Website Strang 2

For the general identity and the website, we focused on the viewer's individual approach to the exhibited artworks. Therefore, he or she seeks his or her own way through the page. During the visit all decisions are recorded in the form of a protocol. This leads to a website that is created by the user's individual decisions and documents his or her path to the sought information.
