HorseMove ProjectSpace poster


This exhibition poster by Michiel Schuurman for the HorseMove ProjectSpace explores optical disunity, utilizing computer technologies to create endless patterns of replication and visual complication. These computerized distortions obliterate the easy reading of the poster, which challenges the conceptual bias of the printed poster as a means for conveying information. The visual bombardment of the repeated forms compels the viewer to look harder to decipher the information.

A Poster by Michiel Schuurman


Every summer, hundreds of thousands of visitors travel by ferry to Governors Island, a former Coast Guard outpost that has become one of New York City’s most popular public parks. In summer 2012, Cooper-Hewitt was proud to host our exhibition, Graphic Design: Now In Productio​n, on Governors Island, and I was proud to be among the organizing curators.
