Visibility

Six Memos for the Next Millennium
Italo Calvino
These compositions are graphic interpretations of the chapter titled Visibility in Six Memos for the Next Millenium by Italo Calvino. In this chapter, Calvino discusses memories of growing up and the influence of television on his imagination. I chose to focus on the surreal nature of his memories as a starting point for my designs. I used water to submerge type that I created using a stencil and marker. The photographs and digital manipulations of these distortions recreated the mood of the essay.
