By Yeohyun Ahn and Viviana Cordova
Book design by John P Corrigan
Published by MICA, Center for Design Thinking
ISBN: 978-0-578-01143-1

By Yeohyun Ahn and Viviana Cordova. Type + Code, explores the aesthetic of experimental code driven typography, with an emphasis on the programming language Processing which was created by Casey Reas and Ben Fry.

This book includes examples using Processing on basic, intermediate and advanced levels. This independently published book revised Yeohyun Ahn’s graduate thesis project. I collaborated with Yeohyn Ahn and Viviana Cordova to create a new interpretation of Ahn’s work with Processing, intended for designers to provide instructional tools to be able to promote processing as a viable design tool. With limited understanding of the language and usage I was able to direct Ahn to create tutorials and examples that best identify the design possibilities. Previously Ahn had created a number of separate but highly visual and independent letter forms. Using my design and editing skills I was able to articulate Ahn’s intentions and vision encouraging her to create specific letter forms and examples that would expand her content. By working closely with her I was able to recontexualize the richness and depth offered by Processing to generate complex and biomorphic random designs.

Research and design created for a graduate seminar class that looked at the Visual Culture of the Holocaust. I chose to research the creation of Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda paying particular attention to the missing gap in the history of graphic design. This document was created as the initial inspiration of my MFA thesis.

Central Air :: Nomadic Art Space announces the publication of its first exhibition catalog. The book features a collection of Polaroid photographs from 1992-1997 by artist Jerome Page Tobias. Jerome Page Tobias (1971) is a working artist in Sackets Harbor New York. His work has been included in numerous solo and group shows. Jerome works in artistic mediums such as sculpture, drawing, print making, installation work, photography, and graphic arts. He is also a writer and poet.

Jerome’s work often confronts the false documentation of family memories. His work looks at themes of both collection and recollection. Jerome states that, ”Collected family artifacts can be manipulated and redistributed to form a new context.”

As with any artist or photographer, volume is the key towards the potential of a great image. By pairing up several photos, a new context increases the potential accuracy, or questioning(?) of historical events and places. As a second generation historian, Jerome looks at unknown events though a diffused and altered observational lens. Without the presence of both the matriarch and patriarch, a new story is recreated from the items left behind. This new story is part fiction and 
part truth.

Jerome’s past drawings were based on family artifacts. His intention was to draw the objects and create a pictorial reference for the collection, in order to dispose of the items themselves. He found that the drawings contained the spirit of the object as well as the person that originally used the object.

Jerome’s personal photographs document his connection to place and space. He uses photography to capture a momentary observation. His photos archive the poetic narrative of roadside ephemeral signage, the grand openness of landscape, as well as a personal pause of observation.
