LINE, DOT, PIXEL. TYPOGRAPHY AND PERCEPTION.

New Design University (NDU) St. Pölten

27.9.–6.10.2019

The exhibition LINE, DOT, PIXEL examines the connections between typography, perception, and legibility – at the same time exploring the emotional effect of writing. Because a world without writing would be unimaginable: On the one hand, it’s used for communication. On the other, writing involves much more than just legibility and at a certain point stops conveying messages to become a message itself, a form, possibly even art. Where does writing begin – and where does it stop? How does it influence us – and how will it develop in the future? Organ­ized into three core areas – writing as experiment, in publications, and on the screen – students’ book proto­ types, posters, typefaces, experimen­tal typography, and digital works will be on view.
