POINT, LINE AND SURFACE TO VOLUME
ABOUT THE MOMENT WHEN GRAPHICS DETACH THEMSELVES FROM THE SURFACE
Exhibitions are created in a complex and multi-layered process with the participation of numerous experts, some of whom have their own specific requirements, such as curators, scientists, designers, authors, editors, and so on.
Exhibition graphics is one of the central links in this mixture, which plays a significant role in all process phases and design sub-disciplines.
Above all, however, it is the graphics that generate the immediate act of communication as a dramaturgical exhibition experience and guide the visitor through the contents and ideas of the exhibition.
Exhibition graphics is not limited to two-dimensional surfaces, but uses all possibilities, means and dimensions to create communication.
Not only the physical space with all its facets like light, movement, depth, sound, etc. can be designed with the instruments of graphics. Especially the medial virtual dimension opens
innovative spaces that want to be explored and designed analogously to the physical space.
Graphics as a discipline develops graphics in exhibitions as a membrane between physical and digital spheres. The lecture places exhibition graphics in an expanded context and illuminates potentials for an integral and continuous staging.
