Regina Silveira’s Magnificent Illusions

Renowned Brazilian artist Regina Silveira creates incredible illusions that play with our senses and messes with our minds. She invites the viewer see huge shadows or watch as toy cars make their messy track marks on a gallery’s white walls. In Lodz, Polland, she created an installation called “Depth” where she incorporated the gallery’s architecture, particularly its windows, to show a never-ending abyss one could actually walk on.

Currently, there’s a selection of Silveira’s work on display at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut (the only museum in Connecticut devoted to contemporary art). There, she presents In Absentia, a series of absent artworks on empty pedestals. She does this by creating gigantic and distorted vinyl shadows of objects that don’t actually exist.

Multinational Typeface

This colourful alphabet has been designed for Grey Advertising’s new multinational team based in Singapore. It’s been constructed from the abstract shapes of over one hundred national flags. 

These national elements have been broken down and imaginatively rearranged into a limited display typeface (see above animation). Many letters have several alternative characters to represent nations beginning with the same letter. 

Although the alphabet currently represents just the 106 countries that the team operates in, according to the designer, Luis Fabra, the font is to be extended to include the other 90 countries. As no country begins with ‘X’ this has been left grey and I’d assume any forthcoming punctuation might use the same shade.

I love the inventiveness of the alphabet and how the flags have been interpreted. As part of a branding system the letters add a nice splash of colour without looking overly garish. It looks particularly good mixed with the silvery grey letters when used for the office signage system

However, to really claim to to be a “multinational” typeface the next step must surely be to challenge the concept and see how the design might be adapted for Chinese, Devanagari, Arabic or other intentional system used by millions around the world.
