I've recently come across this interesting book, Tactile, by Robert Klantan. The premise is that graphic designers are now exploring the boundaries between 2-D and 3-D, exactly where I'm investigating in my ceramic forms. Modern technology has 'liberated' text and images into collages, sculpture and installation, the authors argue.
As the reviewer from Wallpaper magazine observed:
"Tactile is a timely review of a very contemporary graphic movement. Three-dimensional graphics have made a comeback, a reaction against the screen’s lack of depth and the general sense that when it comes to visual design, anything goes."
