the absurd kind of uniformity is a phrase taken from Walter Benjamin's Illuminations: Essays and Reflections, "On Some Motifs in Baudelaire." The final product is a portfolio of various book covers that I designed for Benjamin's Illuminationsand a documentation of a three-dimensional type sculpture*, which highlights the word "unifomity" from Benjamin's text. The package includes eight booklets representing eight weeks of designing book covers, a mini poster documenting the type sculpture, and an introduction/artist statement card.

*The three-dimensional type sculpture was made by hand-cutting sheets of newsprint paper.
