Infocus, 2007

www.infocusdialogue.com website and publication (not published) for IN FOCUS - an ongoing project with international artists, whose work refers to the Middle East from their own cultural, social, historical and political contexts.

In collaboration with Jonathan Puckey and Roel Wouters.
A design concept
Talking about, and expressing opinions on the Middle East is a difficult and touchy subject. There is the potential for many misunderstandings. People can get hurt. Is one allowed to say what one wishes, even if it might be labeled discriminatory by others? [...]

The proposal that most of the texts in the publication would be in the form of interviews suggested that they are one of the most direct, straight forward forms of dialogue. As a visual approach to the catalogue and website, the hope is to combine the complexity of communication with a visualisation of dialogue.

The design is based on analyses of all the conversations with the artists. However the parameters for the graphics have been based not on WHAT is said, but on HOW things are said, by focusing on the uses of language, punctuation, grammar and other characteristics of communication. By doing this communication is visualised without commenting on its contents.

On the one hand the attempt is to be as objective as possible by applying the graphical treatments using the same rules, on the other hand who invented those rules?

By giving the interviews a major presence, the focus is on dialogue. The choice was to represent dialogue in a graphic form as a speech bubble. Speech bubbles date back to the 13th century when they were used to depict speech in art using scrolls, flags or sheets of paper. They could be seen as an icon for dialogue across all cultures.

The physical parameters of the text on the page influences different sorts of modifications to the speech bubble
