Tel Aviv based graphic artist and typographer Oded Ezer ( http://bit.ly/1rE0f4J ) reveals four new works in his solo exhibition, ‘Practical Particles’ (Vitrina Gallery of the Holon Institute of Technology, Dec. 30 — Jan 28, 2015).
The four works – described by the designer as a ‘showcase of typographic responses to current issues in culture and mass communication’ – are comprised of animated gifs, that make use of unsettling images and fragments from found online political, brutal, pornographic and other videos to create a new kind of typographic visual language.
All four works – ‘We Are Family’, ‘(Breaking) The Crystal Goblet’, ‘.˙. |:’ (Aka Dot.Font) and ‘Art vs. Design’ – are based on square shapes and in the format of animated-gif installations.
Practical Particles responds to what Ezer calls ‘the pornographic era’ and the inevitable realities of current mainstream communication, which include the spread of hard pornography, politicization of the self and brutality.
