Fade into you / Can you read me
The content of this publication consists of the results of a project between a friend and me where the same five questions were answered every day for a month. Thus the results are extracts from our lives that at the time were going through changes. We were both about to move to new countries, even new continents and in the dark December cold, we lived our lives to the fullest. Now the words and sentences are fragmented, extracted from its context, but for us, they are although tied to memories. It is a mixture of nonsense, secrets, and events that are both personal and private. Dependent on the receiver, the words find new meaning and thus new context.
The publication is an experiment of how one can appropriate the use of typography to censor something private or personal. Challenging perceptions as the receiver is forced to subvert their known way of reading and thus immerse themselves within the text to unveil the concealed messages. The publication portrays a deliberate nod to how we publish ourselves online, specifically how we censor ourselves with the help of filters and aliases, highlighted once more through the fact Fade into you / Can you read me features two covers and thus two beginnings.
