Interweaving visual and textual poetry at the intersection of typography and writing

In collaboration with Maggie Jennings and Christina Niederberger, Studio Sink Poetry takes inspiration from the Kitchen Sink Painters of the 1950’s. Whimsically spinning poems about studio occurrences, which are in turn explored through the written word, design practice and the act of printing, creating an almost spontaneous example of visual poetry.

This project was created in a close and seamless collaboration with the artists. Working together in discussions around the meaning of the poems, we worked spontaneously and intuitively together in order to explore the possibilities of merging the process of design and writing. Creating a process in which writing and aesthetics are interwoven to create a playful, tongue in cheek reading experience.
