Description

“Claying with Type” is a collaborate project between type designer Guðmundur Úlfarsson (Or Type) and product designer Hanna Dís Whitehead where they work with their joint interest in the journey between the digital and the handmade. The works are based on a visual conversation between the two artists, from two-dimensional to three-dimensional and vice-versa, which is sometimes misunderstood and has even been distorted midway.

Both Hanna and Guðmundur have a personal approach to their work, which is on the borders between design and art. In his type design, Guðmundur works with language and text-based art, while Hanna weaves materials, colours, forms, and story together in her creation of sculptures, household objects, textiles, carpets, and other products.

In the process, Hanna started by disassembling and making new shapes inspired by elements in the different typefaces from Or Type. She then translated them into clay by making simple ceramic shape reliefs. The reliefs developed into ceramic sculptures that visually change shape every time the viewer changes their point of view. From his different point of view, Guðmundur then drew multiple symbols from each sculptures.

The wall rug is handtufted by Hanna Whitehead, it tells a story of the project process. In it, you see the first sketches of shapes, reliefs, sculptures, and symbols .

Exhibited in Gallerý Port, Reykjavík during Designmarch 2020.
