the actual installation of my 'impressions of duluth' piece.

all of the figures were cut from vinyl and installed in the tweed museum of art in duluth, mn. the title that can be found on the tag that accompanies the piece is 'are we or aren't we? (impressions of duluth).'

installed in 12 min. 48 sec.

hopefully i'll get faster....

a detail of a vinyl installation. this is what the little guy in the first image is pointing to.

the project itself serves more than one duty, but 'impressions of duluth' refers to an assignment i'm currently working on: my impression of duluth/university of minnesota duluth.

placed in one of the galleries of the tweed museum of art in duluth, mn.

the figures were cut out of vinyl and then installed in 12 min. 48 sec.

If you can't figure this out, it's the silhouette of skiers on a chairlift, as downhill skiing and snowboarding are very popular in Duluth. One of the textures is snow from the ski slope, another is a map of Duluth. This is the first in a series of three focusing on Duluth recreation.

Christina's Impressions of Duluth

Now, at long last, some MFA in Graphic Design graduate student impressions of Duluth, since they wanted to get in on the fun. This is the first student (Christina) out of seven. You can click on the thumbnail images below for larger versions. Enjoy, and feel free to comment!

annalie's impression

i chose a humorous approach to this assignment because it's an ongoing joke that natives of duluth are about 3 years behind modern fashion trends, especially hairstyles!

Annalie Norlander's Impression of Duluth

Apparently it's all about the hair...and Lake Superior, of course.

"D-TOWN" Group Signature Page

Our Turkish collaborators were kind enough to include a signature poster with their "Impressions of Ankara" poster, very fascinating for us, so we've made similar ones in return.

"D-TOWN" Group Impression

Here's the other Typography 2 class group impression of Duluth. The other 9 students (18 total) collaborated on this one...my interpretation is that Duluth itself is addicting, and they can't help but consume all the opportunity and natural beauty...which is why their (Photoshopped) bellies are a bit large. Am I right?!

"Doolooth" Group Signature Page

Our Turkish collaborators were kind enough to include a signature poster with their "Impressions of Ankara" poster, very fascinating for us, so we've made similar ones in return.

Brandon Hermsen's Impression of Duluth

UMD students were asked to make individual and collaborative single page "Impressions of Duluth" in response to the delightful "Impressions of Ankara" made by Başkent University students of Halime Fişenk. They are meant to inform and inspire our Turkish collaborators in making their logos for Duluth.

This is the first one uploaded, chosen at random. It's by Brandon Hermsen, Typography 2 student at UMD. More will follow soon.
