Connected #1

An experimental project about networking. Networking is very important in the world of graphic design and we wanted see how far the network of our collective would reach by making it visual. That was the intention for us at the outset of the project. This is the first in a series of three experiments.

We started by spreading a blank sheet of paper Ė a basic A3 sized poster Ė into our network. Everyone who received this poster had to add something visual to it and then send it to two other graphic connections. After four rounds, we ended up with 24 posters, all showing a diversity in visuals and steps in our network.

At the end of this experiment, the outcome was visualised in a connection 'tree' through the whole physical space (at the exhibition) and also online at the Connected Project website.

In collaboration with Hanneke Minten and Rob van Leijsen (Holy Grey). The Connected Project was exhibited during the Graphic Design Festival Breda 2011.
