A fresh, new interpretation of contemporary graphics in this short essay by Marco Privato. This interesting and shrewd piece declares its intent to bring some order to the jumble of communication that dominates us, in order not to lose faith and to continue to search for new visual stimuli.
This essay gives a new interpretation of recent years and how images have modified our relationship with graphics, whether they are used in advertising, a catalogue or on a surface. Marco Privato clearly suggests to what extent our relationship with visual communication should not be underestimated in order to understand how modern thought has been surpassed.
Sometimes difficult to understand, at others so clear that they are absorbed without thought, the graphics that the author reveals are those that some of us are bombarded with daily, while for others they are an excellent source of professional reflection.
One hopes that after reading this short text we will look at an object, a magazine or a piece of ceramic in different way, generating new ideas for the future.
