ISTD: Four Minutes, Thirty-Three Seconds
The brief asked for a typographic representation of my own performance of John Cage’s famous composition: I looked at meditation and the shift from a chaotic to calm mind.
I created a book introducing people to meditation, with a unique poster transcript of my performance inserted in it. Delicate pages and a calm layout encourage slow reading.
The poster series consists of my thought processes for the duration, with the placement of words randomly generated to reflect the indeterminacy inherent in Cage’s piece.
