Exhibit A: Design/Writing/Research

January 20 – March 16, 1996

Design installation by J. Abbot Miller and Design/Writing/Research

Exhibit A: Design/Writing/Research coincides with the publication of Design/Writing/Research: Writing on Graphic Design by J. Abbott Miller and Ellen Lupton.

The typographical installation traces the history of typography while addressing the physicality of the letter. The dematerialization of the world is a phenomenon of the present that has been hastened by digital, electronic, and virtual technologies. Exhibit A confronts this dematerialization by considering the objecthood of typography: the letter made flesh.
