Medium-Specific
things and thoughts on printed matter Nobuhiro Yamaguchi, Kazuya Kondo, Daishiro Mori, Hideki Nakajima
As a medium, print has consistently and continually ensured the transmission of things and thoughts across time and space. In this special issue of IDEA, four designers take the material specificities of paper and ink as their order for attempts to rethink the function or possibilities of printed matter as a medium.

INprints ON Paper Nobuhiro Yamaguchi
Nobuhiro Yamaguchi uses movable type, a process in which the white space on the page possesses equally as much “materiality” as the printed letters, to compose the first half of his section around the theme of the equal value of absence and presence, figure and ground, type and white space. In the latter half of his pages, he examines the element of chance built into spoilages as a way of focussing on the uncertainty of printed materials.

Visions in Time – Miyota
Homage to Toru TakemitsuTobu Otoko = The Flying Man Homage to Kobo AbeKazuya KondoKazuya Kondo takes the pure blank spreads of a book dummy as a screen, and shoots a cinematic homage to composer Toru Takemitsu and author Kobo Abe. By crossing between the different supports of paper and screen, Kondo’s camera creates a structure in which the conventional structure of viewer and viewed is overturned, and places this on the printed page.

320-3

Printed Matter: Robert Smithson’s LandscapeDaishiro Mori / Sen UesakiDaishiro Mori engaged in a discussion with critic Sen Uesaki about the printed matter of contemporary artist Robert Smithson. They see Smithson’s work as understanding printed matter as the matter in the domain between material and idea, and the very pages on which they inscribe this reading appear as printed matter on which multiple “matters” are imprinted in the acts of writing and laying out the text.

CLEAR in the FOG 2 Hideki Nakajima
Hideki Nakajima created a book within a book to fit inside a hole in the cover of CLEAR in the FOG, a collection of his work that uses multiple printing techniques to rethink the essential nature of print. Nakajima’s project becomes another collection of work on its own when it is physically separated from the magazine, and held in a reader’s hands.
