ISSUE 5: Periphery






UQ Journal is a yearly collaborative publication between curators and designers. By each issue, the contributors initate a theme to be discussed from both design and curatorial perspectives. In the fifth issue, we put ‘Periphery’ as an area of discussion to be developed as a coherent publication.

Even when we are thinking about center and the periphery in abstract terms, we are stuck with their visual representations. Maps and data-visualisations represent scale, distance and density as the reflection of our landscape therefore they direct the understanding of our society. If these representations are taken as standards, we are less likely to be able to change our viewpoints. Working closely with curators and editors, my aim was to design an inside-out reading experience which challenges the standard priorities of a text and the book itself.
