Polina Joffe: Ode to Construction: Abstraction in the Digital Age

This dynamic and superbly designed book is Berlin-based graphic designer Polina Joffe’s investigation into Russian Suprematism and Constructivism, demonstrating the fluidity of design in the digital age. Ode to Construction – Abstraction in the Digital Age explores the intersections of graphic design and art through the means of generative code, gesturing playfully and melancholically towards the foundational legacies of the Suprematist and Constructivist movements of the early 20th century. At once a book, website, and exhibition, Ode to Construction demonstrates the fluidity of design’s materializations within the conditions of the digital, moving effortlessly between screen, print, and space. By reanimating the formal strategies of modernist abstraction, graphic designer Polina Joffe probes the technical and social registers of design today.
