This is no. 8 release of projects in my »Inquiries in visual memory«.

This time two different projects are presented. The Release_Project [11]: “The Bayer-model of the one-eyed viewer” – and the Discours_Project [5] presenting 1/360 part of Danish Design 1945-1975. Cover-design for Medusa Publishing.

No. 8 edition of inquiries in visual memory has been delayed half a year. This is due to the fact that I have been working hard on the project and book Present on Site. Transforming Exhibitions and Museums that has been published this year.

The Release_Project [11]:

The Bayer-model of the one-eyed viewer - scrutinize the surface of everyday culture.

Herbert Bayer preliminary 'Diagram of Field of Vision' - rationalized the user experience of the exhibition illustrated by an experience with a viewer at the center. A paradigmatic experiment in the history of exhibition design realized in the German installation in Paris 1930.

Where is the border between the tradition and the 'new' concept?

Discours_Project [5];

1/360 part of Danish Design 1945-1975. Cover-design for Medusa Publishing – emphasize a series of book covers at the design researcher Lars Dybdahl stress: “In the middle of the 1970s publications like Medusa’s had an important exemplary function for an aesthetic reinforcement of the work of cover and graphic design among the alternative publishers.”


Kind regards
