Topology is a series of black & white hand sketches by Huang Zi (the artist) that explores the imaginative topography of various landscapes and people's relationships with them. Because on every inch of every terrain, there is life. It is a diary of sorts to capture the stories of his various travels to faraway places. Documenting journeys through an artistic rendition is a historical way to celebrate the places that others call home. Huang Zi is bringing this art form to the digital age via an online gallery and social media.
The scope of the project was to inject a cultural related theme into the designs. Andrew Carter, the designer, produced a look of action to express contemporary art through the motion of the logo. The different arrangements of the logo creates a sense of motion that cause the eye to move over the work. What inspired the artist was a reading about a technique which captures movement in several frames. Andrew also took inconsideration that the rate of new typefaces being produced nowadays is simply staggering, so a detailed research had to be done.

“Base” is the name of a typeface conceived and designed by Franco Cervi. The project sums up a minimalist approach, formal rigor and an aptitude for experimentation. The original presentation brochure, besides showing the complete set of the designed characters – including glyphs – also illustrates their graphic personality, the constructive anatomy, the geometric ratios that generate the kerning. The appendix contains meta-graphic applications.
As private space will become a valuable resource in the future, the rising need to define and design this room is a matter of importance in the present age. O3JECT is committed to manufacture and advertise tap-proof space as an aesthetically appealing reminder of an unknown future.

This exhibition catalogue not only captures with tenderness the texture of decorative elements of traditional Chinese temples in glorious black and white, but also the scent of a temple.

It invites readers to take a second look at the overlooked and be engaged through the senses of sight and smell as memories are evoked; new possibilities are imagined and personal connections are explored.
