A catalog for Writing Writing, an exhibition mounted at West in The Hague from 2020 to 2021.
The publication features new essays and visual work by exhibitors Ian Lynam, Matthew Monk, Randy Nakamura, Chris Ro, and Gail Swanlund.
Writing Writing explores the notion of parataxis—the pairing of disparate imagery or sentences—to create new meaning. One part political, one part poetic, and one part semiotic, this volume explores the work of five designers who write as well as make visual form. The result is an inspiring book that presents models of hybrid practices while documenting designers and their approach to writing in the twenty-first century.
