INTRA SPACE is an experimental research project established by an exclusive group of architects, performance- and media artists at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. In their process, they’ve provided a setting in which the human body, its gestures and movements interact with a computer-generated algorithm which provides a digital mirrored replica.
Besides a remarkable aesthetic output, the group deals with questions of the human vs nonhuman body and spatial spheres in time and space.
We’ve been asked to design a poster and invitation card that proclaim the two INTRA SPACE symposia with presentations of the group's research, a variety of activities on the topic and lectures by international guests.
After observing the setting, thoughts on three-dimensional space, mirroring and motion popped up and we sketched around those aspects.
We decided to create a visual metaphor on the performative dialogue between the dancer, it’s digital mirrored 3D replica and space around, which simultaneously divides but also connects them.
The first poster was silk screen printed on reflective chrome paper which created special attention to the mirroring aspect.
The second poster uses flesh colour on pitch black-coated paper, focusing on the technological evolution of the human – and nonhuman – body within the project.
Each poster was silk screen printed by hand in a limited edition of maximum 100 pieces.
