Example text

While the diverse interpretations of the modernist design principles sooner or later fell victim to the conservative constraints of the commercial world, poetry allowed various postwar typographers to escape commercial restrictions. Concrete poetry, which emerged in the 1950s, is often considered a late version of visual poetry. But most concrete poems are fundamentally different in their modus operandi. While visual poets challenged the words semantically, concrete poets visually interpreted their syntax.

Transitional typography allows for words and letters to emerge from and to dissolve into random signals, so viewers are continually challenged to predict the kind of information that is about to evolve. Time-based information – Kate Moross Before entering her undergraduate training, Moross created an example of motion graphics that was quite unusual due to its consistent ambiguity between moving image and moving type. The project was presented during the ‘Typo. move’ conference, which was organised by onedotzero at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London in 2005.

6 Concrete poetry Selected works – Eugen Gomringer Gomringer is a key figure in German concrete poetry. He was born in Bolivia in 1925 and studied economics and art history before he began to work at the University for Arts and Design in Ulm, Germany, in 1957. Gomringer founded his own press in 1960 to publish visual and concrete poetry. But whilst promoting the work of others, Gomringer also produced a significant body of poetic work himself. His approach to concrete poetry is very methodical: small modifications in the wording or in the arrangement of letters lead to puzzling results.
