ALPHABET spring 2020

Angewandte Fotografie & zeitbasierte Medien

During the lockdown, students of the department of applied photography and time-based media developed a photographic alphabet. The limited working space was examined, deciphered, manipulated and translated into (photographic) letters and numbers.

The result is a common pictorial script that challenges the contemplation of the everyday but also refers to the individual situations in isolation.

The relationship between motif, text and semiotic, visual language and typeface are experimentally shifted by the actual use as a writing tool – TYPE A PHOTO EDITORIAL.

Watch out also in public space!
