As a conclusion to his residency at the Visible Futures Lab, Conor Klein presents his art, design, and research, which explores the relationship between the written word and the objects on which they appear. Beyond clarifying what an object is and how to use it, language can imbue context, authenticity, and value. Likewise, the reading of words is affected by their physical manifestation. Through the careful merging of text and form, Klein's objects speak about themselves, each other, and their place in our lives. The work is a mouthpiece for the artist's own voice, which considers the narrative of design and our interaction with the designed world.
