Curtain

Identity

An exhi­bi­tion by Para Site in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Rockbund Art Museum, Curtain explores pas­sage­ways and porous and imporous sep­a­ra­tions between indi­vid­u­als, cultures, and the arts.

For the identity of the exhi­bi­tion, we explored an image strategy that would exemplify this, a layering of wholly distinct things — in par­tic­u­lar, that of the mundane, material, everyday, and that of the fronter, be it tech­no­log­i­cal or natural. This is paired with a unique vertically-​oriented script typeface that pairs beauty with the unex­pected, reflects the vertical pos­si­bil­i­ties within Chinese typog­ra­phy, and functions as a typo­graphic curtain overlaid on the imagery.

This was my final project for Wkshps and Project Projects after six years of working together and displays all the inherent interests in that, and as such the work shown below isn’t reflec­tive of any par­tic­u­lar one final product, but I think reflects our col­lec­tive ideas and the ideas inherent in our process as advocates for uncon­ven­tional design solutions and more impor­tantly, how that inter­sects with art insti­tu­tions of various scales.
