Colour Reading

oooh, colour!

Stephanie Syjuco’s project Towards a New Theory of Color Reading translates newpapers geared to limited audiences into a more universal language: color.

“Bauhaus-style “newspapers” were printed and available free for gallery visitors. The layouts and formats were taken from three local Houston ethnic-based journals: El Dia (Spanish-Language), the Houston Forward Times (African-American), and theManila Headline (Filipino-American). By abstracting the content of each publication, a new visual fomat was created for viewers to attempt to “read.” Three bulletin boards served as a way to display all the pages at once.”
