Top 10 most stunning art installations in 2013

Top 10 most stunning art installations in 2013 | D_sign | Scoop.it

Why do we love installation art? For many reasons. First, it's oftentimes immersive, providing visitors with a multi-sensory experience. Next, it's site-specific, meaning that piece of art was built for that particular time and space. Finally, it's highly imaginative in that it brings several different materials together to create something original and unexpected.

The beauty of Jenson's Roman typeface

The beauty of Jenson's Roman typeface | D_sign | Scoop.it

Although 15th-century printers were not artists or aesthetes — they were metal workers, punching type and maintaining these huge, new pieces of machinery — they were designing a means of expression intended to last (as the Roman letter-form had, by that point) a thousand years. And so it was that Nicolas Jenson, lately of Mainz, settled in Venice and began to punch type for a 1470 edition of Eusebius set in a Roman typeface.
