Upcoming Gallery 44 workshop I am DYING to take:
“From the text on a door telling us to PUSH/PULL, or the authoritative voice of city traffic signs, to the ceaseless holler of advertising, typography is the material voice of the city. The urban environment is a typographically rich setting where competing texts clash for our increasingly splintered attention. … [this workshop] will encourage participants to seek out, on the streets its potential narratives as opportunities to hybridize text and image together into a contemporary aesthetic.”
As you can see in the slideshow above, I really like text. And cities. And photography. And Natalie Portman.*
Like text and cities and photographs too? Go sign up!!
