Markuz Wernli Saito
Photographer, Interdisciplinary Visual Artist
New media and the Web influence how we share and convey knowledge. Even reading patterns in books are changing which contain more visuals and eclectic information structures. Markuz Wernli Saito will take the audience through the design process of his just published book Mirei Shigemori, Modernizing the Japanese Garden and examine how various parts of contents converge into one coherent publication. The audience is invited to bring in printed samples, which integrate image and text to open up the discussion.
Markuz Wernli Saito is a photographer and interdisciplinary artist from Switzerland working in Kyoto and San Francisco. He is fascinated by the dialectics of humans and their environment. Focusing on independent artistic installations and photo assignments for publications worldwide, he is a lecturer at Kyoto University of Art and Design.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
You can also meet Markuz Wernli Saito on Friday, September 9 at his exhibit at The Noodle Gallery which you can read about here as a PDF.
