Visual Manifesto

Our second assignment was to create a manifesto that ‘proposes a vision for making/living/working/being an artist’ whilst keeping in mind the importance of Typography. For this task I decided to format my Manifesto in the style of an Eye Test Chart. This enabled me to put my ideas across clearly as the font used in these charts – ‘courier’ – is incredibly legible and appears to come across as clean which is aided by the clinical feel of the font. Additionally, as art is (primarily) a visual subject, the concept of an Eye Chart fitted well with the theme. The inclusion of the Ishihara Test Plates hints at the fact that there are many interpretations of art and, in turn, my manifesto. As the test is used to detect colour-blindness, whilst one person may see one side of the argument, others will see another which is equally valid. My manifesto itself is fairly broad on the approach to the subject; however, I feel strongly at this moment in time about my decisions made.
