Discovering new works of the New-York-based design practice Project Projects is always inspiration. Explore the studio's newest publication which encloses the output of the pioneering conceptualist artist.
Jiro Takamatsu was one of the most acclaimed Japanese artist of the Mono-ha movement. With the background in philosophical principles, the artist took the art outside of the confines, bringing it out of the institutions, blurring the lines between art and life.
The designers of Project Projects — Adam Michaels, Shannon Harvey, and Siiri Tännler, closed the vivid output of Jiro Takamatsu into one book, using a shift in paper to distinguish „a generous plate section from archival photography of the artist’s studio, historical process images, and stills from a 1974 Japanese television documentary depicting Takamatsu at work”, as described by the designers.
The book was co-published by Inventory Press and Kayne Griffin Corcoran, Los Angeles.
