Dan Collier. Typographic Links is a hand-sewn book which maps interesting links and connections throughout the world of typography. Red threads are used as three-dimensional 'hyperlinks' to guide the reader through the pages. This is an interesting outcome for a project heavily based on digital information and content.

Previous ISTD Awarded Publication - The page here uses embossing to clever effect contrasting to the typography that is printed over the top. I could adapt a similar technique to deal with the two aspects of truth and lies within food.

Channel 4 / Dispatches - Unseen Gaza [Designer - Why Not Associates] This video uses kinetic typography and video footage together. The solid white block covers the majority of the video content so the audience can only see a section of the content limiting thier view. The treatment of type is relative to deception and manipulation of information as it is crossed out as it is written so it can only be read for a brief second. Could I adapt this idea?

Kane Davis - This clever poster focuses on similar themes of distortion and manipulation that I am looking into but within the context of identity theft. By shredding the poster and reconstructing it it serves as 'the medium is the message'. A similar approach to separating and then mixing aspects of truth and lies could be applicable for a final outcome.

The overall look of this poster is perfect because it shows that although the paper wasn't out together perfectly, you can still tell what it is and get valuable information from it

Although somewhat difficult to tell in this video, but this scanimation works incredibly well as the handset wobbles from side to side as if it is ringing. This was my first test of this technique and I would like to test other ideas with it further.

Artefact spread - Rationale. Now the artifact is bound, I can reflect on how all the elements work together as a whole. The idea to highlight certain key words with translations has been a real turning point in the development of the artifact which led to the inclusion of the red page. This dynamic feature of hiding words forces the user to interact with the book more and makes them think about language rather than simply read it.

-*-*-*-*-*-WATCH THE VIDEO-*-*-*-*-*-* Here the rotating piece can be seen in action. The really interesting point to me is when the brain percieves the image as no longer an arrangement of dots but recognises it as an eye. This idea of optical lies and trickery is an area I will investigate into next, firstly through research and then my own development.

-----------WATCH THE VIDEO------------ This video gives an idea of how the sculptural piece works in the flesh when the user can move around it and align the cubes within their sight. Overall I feel this has been a very successful test of the sculptural construction method and the outcome works well. For now I feel I have exhausted the possibilities of working with cubes and need to move on to testing other ways of working and see what they can offer.

Further colour testing to find a more suitable olive palette. The most succesful test so far is the dark green and light green in the bottom right. The dark green is much more resemblant of olives and the pale green/yellow represents the colour of the oil well. I will use these colours from now on in further developments.

(Image is there) When testing with the lowered opacity red text, I came up with the idea of using a red tracing paper or vellum to perhaps hide the red text. This would physically involve the reader more getting them to turn the page to read the text underneath, making them think about the language that they are reading in rather than just quickly skimming through the content.
