Kolja Harbs - MA Show 2018

Blackandwhite – A Story About Dementia
Using the format and visual language of the book, the work sets out to communicate and convey the progression of symptoms associated with memory loss and the gradual deterioration of thinking skills. On the one hand the book will contain the contextual and graphic references to the person concerned, whilst the early stages of the illness are interpreted through increasingly absent words, blurred photographs, typographic disorder, and the use of laser cut interventions upon elements of the printed page. The term "Blackandwhite" is a reference to the graphic language employed to convey the light, shade, and darkness of memory loss.
