Daily Records

3-8-2020, Text on Paper, Wallpaper Print, 277 x 535 cm

Daily Records is a compilation of text elements from international articles, columns, essays and scientific publications that report on daily occurrences during the pandemic and interact with quotes from the context of literature, art, pop culture and music.

Like a puzzle or a generic code, Daily Records connects new “Corona language”, excerpts, phrases, terms and headings - and manifests the power of words, word combinations and word creations. The wallpaper work extends over a wall more than five meters long, which intentionally overwhelms the visitor while also allowing moments of reflection on patterns of media strategies covering the crisis.

The design idea is based on the imaging graphics of technical impulse signal images, and has been gradually refined.

The structure of the text elements is based on the principle of a mind map, hence an arrangement of collected text data, which are linked to references from culture, literature or art history without directly displaying them. The formation of associations and references is not visible and must be created by the reader / viewer himself, reacting according to his / her cultural-subjective view.
