The Visual Communication Design programme at Aalto University (VCD) is an international learn- ing community committed to investigating new modes of action within visual communication. This archive was established in 2020 as a means to document and share the activity and work of the programme.

Writing the Kinesphere

The exhibition features 22 sentences exploring the question: “what does the body know about writing?” Designed collectively through an experimental process, each sentence is reimagined in lettering or typography, creating a spatial reading experience. The collaborative effort has no individual authors, but short descriptions accompany the work, providing insights into each designer’s unique approach.

The exploration between body, text and space has been inspired by the concept of kinesphere, which refers to the sphere of a person’s body reached by their limbs.
