Voices from the Courts is a collaboration between the artist Jack Tan and the Community Justice Centre (CJC), a charity based at the State Courts and the Family Justice Courts of Singapore, out of which a number of projects, events, exhibitions and artworks have emerged.
Inspired by legal statutes binders and being a project with collaboration at its core, the catalogue was designed with the mechanism of two parts coming together - Articles One and Two, which also represent different phases of the project. The idea of two distinct fields coming together (Art and Law) is similarly represented by two accompanying typographic systems, each with its own distinct 'personalities': serif typefaces centralised and justified, sans-serif typefaces left-aligned and ragged-right.
The other core idea of the project is the inquisition of the processes and relationships Tan had with CJC, a legal entity that was previously new to arts engagement. Flowcharts and diagrams were used to symbolise this idea, with various essays in the catalogue designed in flowchart form.
Voices from the Courts catalogue was awarded in Society of Typographic Arts (Chicago) STA100.
