Ignorance – Magazine

A fabric collapsing in Bangladesh? Far away. Atomic waste in the English Channel? So what? The magazine "Ignorance" deals with our the question what we are interested in and why we are ignoring things we know. How we are losing control in the stream of information. And why we are missing the nineties. A documentation of two design students losing control by knowing everything. The use of the typewriter forces the writer to type every single letter with power; the clacking noise of the machine shows how information is generated – which is a necessary experience for a society that is overwhelmed by cheap and superficial news.

A fabric collapsing in Bangladesh? Far away. Atomic waste in the English Channel? So what? The  magazine "Ignorance" deals with our the question what we are interested in and why we are ignoring things we know. How we are losing control in the stream of information. And why we are missing the nineties. A documentation of two design students losing control by knowing everything.
 
Every word has been written with a typewriter to create a closer feeling for information we usually scroll or wipe away on screens. The whole picture language consists of letter overlay, which content is a different one as you might think first. Every page is designed with care; the thougths are so deliberated - just to put it in a disposable medium: A Magazine.

It is your choice: Are you interested? Or will you ignore it?
