Swiss graphic design studio Hauser, Schwarz designed a catalog titled Real Feelings for an international group exhibition at the House of Electronic Arts Basel using Beatrice Display and Beatrice. The catalog explores the rapidly changing relationship between technology and emotions by making use of interesting materials and stark photography.
The cover includes a stark portrait of a person welled up in tears, a work by Dutch artist Coralie Vogelaar. The catalog comes with a transparent jacket that creates a diagrammatic overlay on the human’s face. “We came up with the idea to separate the face and the “action units” (arrows and numbers representing face muscles) in the artwork, for two reasons. First, to hide the person’s emotion: you’ll only see her tears when you take off the transparent film. Second, you can apply the transparent film in front of your own face and therefore, be part of the art,” wrote partner David Schwarz.
