Bioscop consists of ten biographies, ten plots, ten faces, ten stories. They are strewn onto CD, shocking pink vinyl and a booklet.
How. We created Bioscop with typographical characters made of eighteenth-century pear wood, which are resistant over the years to woodworm, runaway pixels and changing messages.
What. Graphic design.
Client. Wu Ming Contingent, Bologna (IT).
Bioscop, instructions for use: slide the pink vinyl disc gently from its sleeve, lay the B-side on the turntable, raise the volume by turning the knob clockwise. Pull out the booklet, breathe in its scent and read its (typographical) characters.
Bioscop is also an early movie projector, invented in Germany in the late nineteenth century by the Skladanowsky brothers.
