PAST AND FUTURE RUINS
Spring, 2012 —
With strong ties to industries that are heavily rooted in rapid evolution, the work associated with graphic design is often created with eventual obsolescence in mind and - as such - is rarely viewed with the same reverence as fine art. Graphic design is considered by many to simply be a tool of communication or commerce. Past and Future Ruins was created with this reality in mind.
The exhibition, created with fellow artist Ben Biondo
, was the culmination of an on-going study that looked at communication and meaning with design as an artform, with both artists analyzing different sides of the relationship. It was presented, in conjunction with SiTE:LAB
in the vitrines of Grand Rapids' Old Public Museum.
