A Clearing Ahead

A Clearing Ahead was the Werkplaats Typografie contribution to PMVABF. As passers-by were invited to ask their questions about the future, the past, the present, answers were found in the books of the WT library. A way of sharing this private library, a way of discovering it. Website designed in collaboration with Emma Hazen, Johanna Himmelsbach, Soyeon Kim, Qihang Li, Theetat Thunkijjanukij, Kai Udema and Mijia Wang.

Poetry Canon

The Poetry Canon is an offshoot of the Poetry Project, a stand-alone publication launched during the Project’s lockdown. The Canon automatically connects poems with an audience. The first poems, published before the 2020 U.S. presidential election were automatically sent to U.S. politicians depending on their votes on a series of bills.
