About the Event

How could a new quotation mark convey annoyance or worry? How might a heavy sigh, skeptical eyebrow, or elated shudder exist as a new letterform? Engaging with design as a medium for inquiry, artist and designer Mia Cinelli proposes a new set of characters to supplement our existing typefaces, attempting to make the rich complexities of verbal and nonverbal conversation visible. Introducing these characters while citing and celebrating their historical predecessors, this presentation prompts a more extensive discussion on speculative design and the role of typography in communication.

Mia Cinelli is an Assistant Professor of Art Studio and Digital Design at the University of Kentucky. Her design practice encompasses an eclectic span of poetic and pragmatic products, installations, and graphics that have been exhibited nationally and internationally.

This talk is in conjunction with Mia Cinelli's exhibition "This Being Said," on view at Bountiful Davis Art Center from June 5 to July 16, 2021.
