Catalogue, Typeface, Signage & invitation
Catalogue, typeface, signage & invitation for of Uri Katzenstein’s exhibition Backryard
at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. The exhibition focuses on sculpture, video art, robots
and films in an atmosphere that links states of matter with various ways of functioning
that deal with temporal disruptions and shifts between past and future.
His works contain humour and touching, strikingly beautiful scenes, while combining
the worlds of fantasy, technology, contemporary aesthetics and social critique,
and undermining basic assumptions concerning our modes of functioning
and ways of understanding the world that surrounds us.
So how would a catalogue from the future look like? The answer is simple -
it looks exactly like a catalogue from today but with a twist.
The twist is in the “extra” typeface we specially designed for the exhibition -
Backyard. The typeface is based on made up language and symbols
and appear in most of his works
