OPEN PAGE: THE ART OF THE CREATIVE PROCESS EXHIBITION
My book designs "Choi! Touchwood!” and “Vanishing Craft" were exhibited at “OPEN PAGE: THE ART OF THE CREATIVE PROCESS” exhibition. OPEN PAGE is an ambitious project which looks into imagination and artistry in the process of content creation — making designs that promote pleasure, enthusiasm and reliability, that communicate and draw attention, and encourage quietness and thought. We never begin with a blank page: every now and then, page by page, a fragment is recalled by another fragment, a new idea forms. Design aims to show dependability in one form or another. Products seek to express feeling of the material, texture and recognition. Space creates warmth and comfort, and the book benefits the eyes, the most obvious attribute of a human being that brings about an immediate emotional reaction, by utilising colours, typography, grid and form.
The hundreds of books and magazines, and dozens of projects related to reading space, products and typography on display in this exhibition emphasise the cross-regional, cross-disciplinary and cross-generational spirit, which becomes an important platform for building cultural dialogue and enriching our aesthetic imagination.
