For an exhibition in Karlsruhe (Germany), I wrote a story in Volapük, a constructed global language invented in that region by Johann Marten Schleyer (in 1879). At the same time, typeface designers Avoid Red Arrows were commissioned to develop a font for Volapük’s specific requirements.
The resulting text piece was exhibited at the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art as a series of posters. It was also printed in the Offenburger Tageblatt, a newspaper that had been running since 1812, with a circulation extending across Baden-Württemburg, including where Volapük originated and ZKM is located.
Lusag Plana Rigik is about Ernst Haeckel’s relationship to Goethe, written in the style of a legend.
