Janis Gildein – How to Hide, Being Present,

Diploma project with Julia Born, Alice Savoie

Published between 1943 and 1967, “Der Kreis” was one of the first gay magazines in Switzerland, whose network grew internationally. As an editorial platform it developed a position and a visual language for the gay community. A contemporary look at the magazine raises questions about the origins of queer culture and its relationship with notions of visibility, i.e. being recognisable while remaining hidden. hello@janisgildein.de http://janisgildein.de

Jin Lee Kyung – No one has yet seen a letter as it really is

Jin Lee Kyung – No one has yet seen a letter as it really is

Diploma project with Julia Born

No one has yet seen a letter as it really is. When the letters have volume and are seen in different perspectives, new form and meanings arise. The letters started with sculptures and were flattened again from different angles. This transition from a three-dimensional construction to a two-dimensional surface enriches the letter’s architectural potential. The resulting shapes are defined by the behaviour of each material.
