As we gear up for Eye 98, we have been busy publishing new material on the Eye website.
In Rick Poynor’s most recent Photo Critique ‘Awkward objects’, he reviews Eigensinn der Dinge / Obstinacy of Things, a book which accompanies an exhibition at the Kunst Haus Wien in Vienna (until 17 February) of 21st century’s still lifes that feature our detritus – discarded gum, old pizza boxes and seemingly random objects — and reveal as much about life today as the still life paintings of the Flemish masters who gave an insight into seventeeth-century Europe.
See ‘Eye on Campus’ on the Eye blog where we talk to Barrie Tullett, the graphic design programme leader at the University of Lincoln, about the college’s bulk subscription to Eye that provides students with opportunities to relish the tactility of print.
‘(Typographic) Noted #89’ includes a selection of type-related things – DR-Foundry’s Raymond, Sudtipos’s Fixture, Dave Addey’s new book Typeset in the Future, Klim Type Foundry’s Heldane and the Letterform Archive’s newly digitised archive – that caught our attention in recent weeks.
Pieces from Eye that are newly published in full online include Sébastien Morlighem’s review of The Moderns ‘Rational, exuberant, eclectic’ in Eye 96; Alastair Graham’s review of Animation: The Global History ‘From magic lanterns to virtual reality’ in Eye 94; and Isabel Stevens’ review of Fantasia of Color in Early Cinema ‘Tints and tones at the dawn of film’ in Eye 92.
