Poster, Sustainability, 2007
This is a Poster. It was overseen (as art director) by Jessica Helfand. It is dated 2007 and we acquired it in 2008. Its medium is offset lithograph on white wove paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
Utilizing red, black, and white in conjunction with the single, geometric form of a square, Christoph Niemann creates a complicated optical illusion in which depth appears variable. Only after careful examination do letters, initially hidden amongst the cubist grid in the background, emerge to spell “Sustainability.”
