Memory Is the Medium is a meditation on memory and creativity through a poetic vision of design-thinking, from one of the world’s most respected creative minds. With photography, graphics and text, Graham Wood’s newest work is an alternative perspective on the possibilities conjured by the magical, the dreamlike, the emotional qualities of design; a wide ranging manifesto for a diverse and open future. Memory Is the Medium breaks from all conventions of formatting and structure. Layered with photographic and typographic adjacencies, nuances and revelations, every page a work of art reminiscent of the manifestos of Dada and Bauhaus.
