Die verlorene Zeit / The lost time
Prof. Xuyen Dam
year of making
The book "The Lost Time" is an attempt to make us aware of our information consumption via mobile phone. It is a book about our curiosity, our subconscious and our experiences. The fear of the unknown, the non-stop "killing time" and the permanent collection of the smallest news are reflected in the book. Anyone can identify with this phenomenon, because it affects us all and the banality of the information is boundless. What happens when you become aware of this constant consumption? This is my/an experience my/a year and my/a time. The design concept has been consciously kept simple, without compromising on the selective use of experimental typography. The documentary style, the concept and the grid should trigger a certain heaviness as the viewer is confronted with the abundance of text. It is less about content than the quantity - but the curiosity drives us to decipher and to read the small text. / Closed format 130x200mm / digital print / 496 pages / 60g and 120g ICEWHITE papers.
