Oxman: The Collection
Create a comprehensive publication that explores the life and work of Neri Oxman, a renowned MIT scientist and artist who works in the field of Material Ecology, a discipline at the intersection of technology, engineering, the natural world, and art.
Much Neri Oxman's work centers around the idea that our future must be grown, not built. The book utilizes a clean, scientific typeface for body copy that contrasts with the sharply organic nature of headline and pull quote type. To reflect the organically experimental nature of Oxman's work, I utilized computationally grown typography, generated in the growth pattern of mycelia, as a visual "look and feel" element.
The publication is divided into three sections: Philosophy, Exploration, and Growth, exploring different aspects of Oxman's life. Each book is differentiated by the use of different colored mushroom type, creating variation and a distinct color palette that accentuates the work and photography seen in each individual volume.
