Just as in Arcane Design I & II this project poses questions on durability within the products of graphic design. Is durability relevant to time? Can a poster that is meant to exist for 10 minutes, be just as durable as one intended to exist for 10 days? I found that Facebook can be seen as a public space, as I believe we no longer only go there on purpose, it's muscle memory and almost obligatory by the wide variety of other online functionality depending on it. Facebook can be used to illuminate distribution time, by experimenting with designing the posters on my iPad I was able to create and distribute within minutes. The posters contain small parts of a bigger message, experimenting with the attempt to grasp the possibilities spaces like these have to offer.
I found that the project started to function almost as a living organism, as it were not the posters that communicated, it is more the page as a whole. Observations like these resulted in more questions than answers, triggering more experiment to come. These questions will be answered as time goes by, and the new public space keeps on living.
Because of the speed in which the posters are created there is no time to make extensive design decisions, so the designs I make are made without thinking. Therefore the visual language is just as much a representation of all I did before and see in my surroundings, as of the limitation of the iPad.
After carefully analysing the results conducted from Arcane Design, this project is a response to some of the questions it gave me. If posters can be created on demand, what does that mean to our perception of them? This project is a experiment on a poster that refreshes itself endlessly to current relevant matter. Unlike Arcane Designe I it can be on constantly, instead of only seen on demand. It asks questions like; can we design a poster that shows an interpretation of the current world at all times? And what happens when you do, can this application be thought of as a representation of the future?
