All Possible Futures: Unrealized Archive #3 Large Format (USA Edition)
All Possible Futures: Unrealized Archive uncovers “unrealized” graphic design projects that consumed many hours—sometimes years—of work, but were never produced. These fascinating proposals—ranging in form from PDFs to photos, dummies, models, and sketches—remain unmade but are deserving of serious discussion. Unlike in architecture and product design, where “unbuilt” or “speculative” work is forefronted as an important subject of critical discourse, most of these projects have until now been buried in flat files or deep in hard-drive storage. We are intrigued by the possibility of making innovative but unrealized graphic design concepts visible to the public and available for critical discussion. What would our discipline look like if unrealized work was treated as a legitimate area of inquiry? We will continue to collect such projects, publishing a new issue once a year, making this an ever-growing archive.
Issue #3: Large Formatwill feature unrealized works that explore extreme scale in some way.
Issue #3 included projects by:
Haeri Chung (aka SUPER SALAD)
James Goggin / Practise
Robert J. Kett
Leonardo Sonnoli and Irene Bacchi
This project began as a part of the 2014 exhibition All Possible Futures,but now lives on in this publication.
