OUK-TOPOS

In the middle of the forest there is an unexpected clearing that can only be found by those who have lost their way” Tomas Tranströmer, Glantän

Utopia derives from the Greek words ouk and topos, ‘not’ and ‘place’: ‘the place that does not exist’. Ouk-Topos speaks to us of a place, of a non-existent city that represents an unreal and idealized, volatile world.

Ouk-Topos generates a double game reflected in the font, almost imperceptible. The traveller arrives in the subtle city, in the abstract city, perfect but at the same time unreal, and time stands still. Ouk-Topos shows us a city where artificial light is a symbol of humanity, of civilization. The inverted invisible city emerges from the pond, as opposed to the city suspended on a mirror between the solid and liquid surface. Without light the city would cease to be reflected in its shadow. Artificial light has become a human symbol and cities have created their own microcosm of electric light to avoid eternal darkness.
