A Proper Cup
Typojanchi 2019: Corners

Design: Youjeong Lee • DaesoonKim

How are the things around us chosen and the typographical element defined? Where in the process do ‘appropriate’ decisions originate? It may be a choice, learning, or unconscious decision based on personal taste, feelings of the moment. Therefore, every decision is both appropriate and inappropriate at the same time. The numerous conjunctives in Eun Oh’s poem ‘Strange Conjunctive’ are strange as in the title; nevertheless, when you take it apart, atmosphere and meaning are revealed as if it makes sense. ‘A proper cup’ delivers a part to the exhibition. The things around the displayed cups and texts are supposed to look appropriate; however, they may not!
