So we were told to make the alphabet out of our bodies and make it in to a short film!

Doing our ABC’s a different way. Using our bodies to create shadows in the shape of letters. I think very interesting use of typogrphy.

Inception Chair by Chiu

2011
Ash
16” x 32” x 16”

Taking the chair archetype and placing within it chairs that are progressively smaller. Each chair has hand cut grooves on the inside edges of its seat frame as well as notches in the seat back. These grooves range from 1/2” wide to 1/8” wide. The mechanism works so that the pegs fit into the grooves of the chair one size bigger and slides into place so that the horizontal edge between the chair seat and back line up. The simple mechanism allows the chairs to be taken apart and put together with ease

THE ORIGINS OF ABC

Where does our alphabet come from?


We see it every day on signs, billboards, packaging, in books and magazines; in fact, you are looking at it now — the Latin or Roman alphabet, the world’s most prolific, most widespread abc. Typography is a relatively recent invention, but to unearth the origins of alphabets, we will need to travel much farther back in time, to an era contemporaneous with the emergence of (agricultural) civilisation itself.

Robert Bringhurst wrote that writing is the solid form of language, the precipitate.[1] But writing is also much more than that, and its origins, its evolution, and the way it is now woven into the fabric of civilisations makes it a truly wonderful story. That story spans some 5,000 years. We’ll travel vast distances, meet an emperor, a clever Yorkshireman, a Phoenician princess by the name of Jezebel, and the ‘purple people’; we’ll march across deserts and fertile plains, and sail across oceans. We will begin where civilisation began, meander through the Middle Ages, race through the Renaissance, and in doing so discover where our alphabet originated, how and why it evolved, and why, for example, an A looks, well, like an A.

"Australian skincare brand Aēsop commissioned McRae to conceive Morphē; a short film that playfully presages a shared collision between science and beauty. At the edge of this world, a painstaking Scientist employs an assortment of liquids and weird contraptions to minister arcane beauty treatments to a sleeping Muse"

One of the few remaining poster designers with political edge. The use of the human body in his work is satirical, humorous, inquizative and overall eye-catching.

"Taking multiple portraits over a three minute period, Ryuta Iida and Yoshihisa Tanaka asked the subject to try and stay as motionless as possible (worst nightmare). The stack of images are then sliced through to create a graduated crater effect, showing the passage of time like the rings of a tree."

Strong simple idea and incredibly beautiful output.
