Il Vuoto E Brutto (emptiness is ugliness) was the title of a workshop conducted by Swiss graphic design duo Norm at Fabrica – United Colors of Benetton's communication research centre based in northern Italy. The workshop explored the relationship between order and disorder, chaos and emptiness.
The objective was to choose a three-dimensional space, remove its contents, make an inventory of the contents, order the contents and finally return the contents to the space in order. A square area located on the Fabrica grounds was selected and by hand, stones were removed, ordered by size and by colour and returned to the space.
