A big part of our project comes to life trough a serie of posters that people will interact with. We felt it was fitting to create a custom typeface in order to make this project truly unique. So without further ado, here is our typeface titled “Grotesk Pacific”. The name comes from the typeface family it belongs to and Pacific is a peaceful pun about the owners of the railway we’re struggling with, Canadian Pacific Railways.
As i am typing this, we are getting ready to screen print our “interactive poster” and completing the final technicalities for our urban installation. Stay tuned, as we’ll be posting a lot more of our progress.

On Thursday, September 25, Host: Natural Histories for Los Angeles kicks off WWSf with a “dark picnic” on the Silver Lake Reservoir Meadow. Enough with the sunshine, bring on the noir.
Host: Natural Histories for Los Angeles explores the multivalent meaning of “host” though spectacle, parasitic opportunism, and domestic landscapes. A picnic enacts the rituals of home on a landscape—it’s both familiar and alien. A dark picnic amplifies both conditions, making the everyday strange.
Join us and bring some food for a picnic an object that glows to illuminate the meadow. Across the street, the Neutra VDL House will blaze up the night.
Your glowing object (no flames please) can be as simple as a flashlight or as ornate as a glowing sculpture or even a dish of phosphorescent algae.
