Book

Babel on demand Sophisticated Geometry

May 2012

chaumont-cover-web

For the annual Graphic Design Festival in Chaumont, we've been inivted to participate in the book project Babel on demand.

Raw Color limited themselves to the triangle as one of the essential shapes of geometry, that served as the base of the experiment. Manipulating colour by folding and cutting, this resulted in shadows creating new shapes and details. All together it becomes essential for the geometric form itself. Leading to a close encounter of shape, colour and texture in equal values. This book is about the difference between seeing and knowing and experiencing the state when 2 dimensions blend into the 3rd one. All in order to create a flow of colour. A quest for sophisticated geometry.

On the initiative of Étienne Hervy and Émilie Lamy, respectively artistic director and publications manager of the Festival, a number of graphic designers have been invited to take part in the project ‘Babel on demand: a monumental manifesto’. Besides the typical work of composition, graphic design in this instance is considered a way of giving material substance to a project; of formalising and treating a subject.

some of the participating designers: Julia, Fanette Mellier, Helmo, Karlssonwilker, Manuel Raeder, Joost Grootens, Thomas Mailaender, Antoine Emmanuelle, Frédéric Teschner, Na Kim and others


The books are for sale at the website of Blurb.
