is a horror film (in development) directed by Russell Morton and produced by Pōtocol.
Penumbra is about a man on the run that washes up on a floating fish farm. He is discovered by a leathery old man and his dog but there is no way out from this structure. Caught between land and sea, dreams and monsters, he must now confront the sins of his past. The title design takes cue from the key themes of the film about the in-between, out-of-phase, and liminality.
Form & Agency
is a solo exhibition by artist Brandon Tay that explores the materiality of the digital. Presented on three stacks — the physical, the virtual, and live simulation components — the visual identity echoes the verticality of the stacks with a custom typeface. Shown in Yeo Workshop.
The experimental variable typeface, As above, so below with elongated ascenders and descenders is capable of forming ‘vertical ligatures’, not with lateral letters but across lines of texts through stems of letterforms. This verticality is reflected through the placement of texts on edges of walls in the gallery space; of thresholds between spaces. Vertical ligatures challenging the linearity of languages; of words in lines; of thresholds between symbols and meanings.
