This Being Said
January 18 – February 29, 2020 | Artist talk and reception: Sunday, February 16, 2 – 4 p.m.
Artist and designer Mia Cinelli exhibits a series of new punctuation marks, letterforms, and symbols informed by facial expressions, gestures, and nonverbal communication in her exhibition This Being Said.
Using design as a medium for inquiry, Cinelli’s typographic series of large digital and small letterpress prints invite discussion about how our current language looks, works, and how our communication might evolve. Featuring both proposed glyphs and examples of their context of use, these works engage in a kind of 'world building' to illustrate a possible future. Specializing in the design of images and experiences, her installation creates a colourful, energetic environment wherein the rules of punctuation are playfully expanded upon.
