Guidebook for Platform Seoul 2008. Offset lithography, saddle-stitched with cover, page size 205 x 280 mm, 92 pp.
Platform was an annual exhibition organized by Samuso and shown at dispersed venues in Seoul. The title treatment suggests a sense of wandering in the city, with the typography of the street sign and confusingly placed arrow marks. The 2008 exhibition was focused on performances and theatricality in art, and the subtitle, “I have nothing to say and I am saying it,” was borrowed from John Cage’s lecture on “nothing.” The source page of the quotation, from Cage’s book Silence (1961), was scanned and incorporated in the design, and the sentence in question was highlighted by underlines.
