Desenho de Luz + Impress茫o

Description

In the fourth and fifth volumes of our Cadernos do Centen谩rio [Centenary Notebooks], we set out to design light and print our visual identity. This is where we now stand, after words of memory and affection (O Elogio do Espectador [Praise of the Spectator]), thoughts as images that celebrate the triumph of restoration over decrepitude (Caderno de Obra [Work Notebook]) and the inventorying of the shapes, lines and colours of our graphic communication up to 2019 (Teatro Visual [Visual Theatre]). Desenho de Luz [Lighting Design] is the product of Ant贸nio Jorge Gon莽alves鈥 鈥渁rtist residency鈥 in the Teatro S茫o Jo茫o and its urban surroundings. In this book, the line is a beam of light on black pages, as the pencil forges a path through thick masses of darkness. The illustrator reveals to (and conceals from) us an edifice in a joyously haunted condition; what is so familiar to us becomes something strange, the domestic turns into the fantastic.

The visual identity conceived by graphic designer Maria Ferrand within the context of the Centenary 鈥 which also makes up the most impressive part of the TNSJ鈥檚 new communication strategy, which develops around the radiating core of the written word 鈥 is the subject matter of Impress茫o [Imprint]. A system of generative design whose basic elasticity produces both repetition and difference, unity and variation. Photographer Jo茫o Tuna was tasked with documenting the 鈥渓aboratorial鈥 environment in which this writing 鈥 in the form of posters, programmes or books 鈥 gradually took shape. Tuna lends noise and performativity to Ferrand鈥檚 typographic silence, capturing it in the city鈥檚 streets, on newspaper pages or on the screens of our phones and computers.
