Thesis Book, Interview, and Lecture

Spring, 2019

This thesis is about visual context, perception, value, and hierarchy. Using art, history, and theory, a robust visual system evolved that relies on the importance of context and conceptualized information. I use this to explore possibilities within the graphic design field.

Each section is introduced with an excerpt from an interview with Jessica Helfand. 



 








The two-sided book jacket doubles as a table of contents and an index for the book.

 
 
The performance lecture reviewed the concepts of the thesis, using a mixture of imagery from art history as well as my graphic design work. The presentation began with a nearly empty wall, and using projected slides and added imagery, re-created the book jacket on the wall by adding images as they were discussed in the presentation.
