These collages are not for reading, even though they have a lot of text on them.
I wanted to try playing with typography in a graphic sense again, and it was lots of fun cutting up text. Some are kept legible, other parts are half covered or cut apart. I love the way they look, and of course you can try deciphering them even though they are not made for reading… It’s up to you.
And if you do understand the texts on these collages (even though that is not the point), maybe you’re a genius (or maybe you just know Swedish)? Aesthetically they’re very different from what I usually make.
Is it a mistake to think you can make art out of typography? Let me know in the comments.

Collages not for reading
Edit: Turning a Blind Eye was numbered 335, but that is the number of the previous collage, Sad to know, too. Because it was wrongly titled no 265 but should’ve been 266 I’m renaming it at the end of the year to 336 (although it still belongs in this week of course). But since I did name a collage the next week 266 and there is no “empty gap” (so then not to re-arrange all year) this will from now on be collage number 336!
When there is text in front of you, can you not read it?
I would love to know if any of these compositions speak especially to you, and why. Leave me a comment below to let me know which one is your favorite of these, or if you don’t like them why that is. Thanks.
