Blast Theory: Poster

Poster for the exhibition You Start It by Blast Theory, curated by Lee Sooyoung (Nam June Paik Art Center, Yongin, 2017). Offset printing, 594 x 840 mm.

The title typography is intended to express the conflation of the virtual and the actual in a way that is not as clichéd as this statement may sound. The slanted logo of the artist group was approximated by slicing up the characters of an upright typeface and sequentially offseting the slices to create an oblique illusion (a trick that used to be widely adopted by bitmap fonts for low-resolution displays). Then an upright form was made by applying the same process inversely to a slanted typeface. The Korean typeface is a heavily adapted version of Sandoll Press.
