Facity

March 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Facity (face + city) is a daily portrait photography project that started in Berlin in 2008 and opened its doors to internationally in early 2010. Any photographer can submit a portrait photo provided that it’s taken in a manner that meets the Facity manifest guidelines. The resulting body of portraits now numbers in the thousands, all taken with natural light without visible clothing, and with an aperture of 2.8 with a 50mm lens. Take a look!

Martin Pyper: Pins and Needles

February 21, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I’m thrilled to share the work of graphic designer Martin Pyper with you. Martin runs a small, award-winning design studio in Amsterdam called mestudio where design, craft, and time-consuming repetition converge to create incredible typographic layouts. I couldn’t imagine how much time these projects consume so I shot a quick email to Martin. As it turns out some work like the “Frontiers of Reality” stop motion clip can take up to a week to complete (though he had to repeat it at a larger scale), while he was able to do the “Boring” type using hundreds of steel pins in just two days.

The fact that it is all so time consuming is precisely the point; it is a perfect antidote to the crazy deadlines and usual design work I do sitting behind the Mac, this stuff slows me down, makes me think about materials, the structure, feeling and way type works in the real physical world, back to the roots of typography before the digital age, but also combined with the digital age.

Pyper’s work isn’t limited to kite string and steel pins though. He has also chosen as a medium sugar cubes, playing cards, and laser-cut paper. Thanks for sharing Martin!

An installation by Andrea Mastrovito using 3,307 individual black and white photocopies that were pieced together to create the view outside the gallery walls. Incredible. (thnx, chelsea!)
