T9 Numerology. Moritz Greiner-Petter._motto books_2017_1

 

T9 (short for ›text on 9 keys‹) is a predictive text technology developed in 1995. It was designed to optimize text entry on 3×4 numeric cell phone keypads commonly used at that time. On these standard 12-key layouts the number keys from ›2‹ to ›9‹ are assigned to a group of three to four letters each. In T9, a sequence of single keystrokes is matched against a stored dictionary. Words associated to the entered sequence of numbers are then presented to the user to choose from. Coincidentally and inherent to the working principle of T9, one sequence of keystrokes can potentially represent many different words. This guide book compiles an incomplete and subjective selection of these so-called ›textonyms‹ to be found in the English language. It exposes the collateral poetry, incidental truisms, and semantic comedy that are latently lurking in encoding and compression technologies like T9.

Uncompromising collection of found images and original work from Felicia Atkinson, composing a rasterized visual score. Audio Book could be a radio program without sound, but it’s a travel guide for a destination that doesn’t exist. It’s a take-away environment. It’s a deep looking into the palimpsests of a landscape.
It gathers two hundred images, some are found materials some are originals. Some images are words. Each of those images contains a grain, a noise, a distortion, a blur, a change of frequency.
The book is the territory. The pages are the knitters of a strange kind of duration.
In the book there is no need for frontiers and passeports, language is a river to cross or to swim in. We are all foreigners of something. There are only derives and situations. The book travels for you, circulates, is exchanged, stolen, given or lost.

This year sees an election campaign and the candidates of the parties are present everywhere showing different slogans but the same pose: in a suit and tie looking to the camera with confidence and a bright smile. Erik Steinbrecher makes them all the same in his latest publication PARTY: Whether nationally conservative or left-liberal, the hopefuls in Germany or France, Switzerland, Great Britain or the USA are here alienated by the tomato slaughter to the point of being unrecognisable. Yet the reader still tries to find out who they are.

Four blank scans of A4 stationary paper are tiled as one A2 graphic and act as the stable base for various experiments with (primarily) offset printing. The publication features individual works, works in series, installations, and drawings. As an offset printed object itself, the publication stands as a full loop of the project, but also as a document that is designed as an exhibition.A project by Mitchell Thar, book design and editing by Ott Metusala, with an essay by Andrew Christopher Green.

This publication contains pictures of eighty-four different hand tools from the collection of Michael Marriott. It celebrates the objects both for their function and for their inherent beauty in repose. Accompanying the objects is an essay by Neil Cummings entitled “Look at me, Look at me, Look at me”, which was originally published in Architectural Design magazine in 2002. It explores Reyner Banham’s notion of the “furniturisation” of everyday objects, and questions why previously unselfconscious domestic artifacts are now promoted as great design.
