Event Details

Tricia Treacy and Ashley John Pigford will speak about their most recent collaboration, the Vista Sans Wood Type Project, at the opening of the exhibition. This project includes the creation of contemporary letterpress wood type and collaboration with 21 international designers/artists/printmakers/studios. Inspired by their interest in the intersection of old and new media, Treacy and Pigford used the modern technology of a Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) router to create wood type of the digital font Vista Sans™, designed by Xavier Dupré for Emigré. A set of five letters, spelling “touch,” was sent to the participants, along with a set of paper. Each participant was challenged to interpret these materials as an edition of prints, reflecting the postdigital and multi-disciplinary nature of contemporary artistic practice.
