I think that from the Nõ
I have learnt the essence
of the beauty of abstraction
that can exceed
the representation of reality.

A Forest of 200 Bussiness Cards by Moriyuki Ochiai: inserted in Styrofoam in order to confer the paper’s fragile, fine and light properties onto its surroundings and reinforce the relationship between object, support and environment. Visitors remove cards of interest, thus changing the exhibit density which in turn shifts their own focus. This results in a complex and beautiful facade that changes from one moment to the next as would the Japanese Sakura(cherry) tree. The business cards are not randomly ordered.Some repeat in patterns but they are not exactly the same.

Space tourism is still a long ways off, but it’s not hard to imagine that someday, tourists will visit the natural geological landmarks of other worlds much like they tour the Grand Canyon, Mount Everest or Ayers Rock. Each of these great tourist destinations needs a classic retro travel poster to entice visitors. Until the day people settle off world and make their own destinations many of these may be the places that people will want to travel too. I hope that these posters can inspire people to think beyond our world to the limitless possibilities of the Universe.

Andrew Colin Beck, a talented graphic design student at BYU, explains the creative process behind materials for a bookstore:
“Idlewild is a travel themed bookstore with locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan in New York City. The store gets its name from the original name of JFK airport in the 60s, during the golden age of air travel. Idlewild sells books about travel, countries, language, and culture as well as books in different languages for adults and children. My goal with this project was to elevate their brand and give it a lively kinetic voice.”
I appreciate seeing the careful thinking that went into this suite of materials, and am especially impressed by the inclusion of text, via the quotes on the “tickets.”
