Maria Fischer is a graphic designer from Augsburg, Germany and many of her works explore line as a communication tool. That concept is certainly not new, but her take on this idea is truly unique.
While much of her earlier work is rich with line, Traumgedanken (Thoughts on Dreams) especially caught my eye.
The book “Traumgedanken” (“Thoughts on dreams”) contains a collection of literary, philosophical, psychological and scientifical texts which provide an insight into different dream theories.
To ease the access to the elusive topic, the book is designed as a model of a dream about dreaming. Analogue to a dream, where pieces of reality are assembled to build a story, it brings different text excerpts together. They are connected by threads which tie in with certain key words. The threads visualise the confusion and fragileness of dreams.
