Peter Bil’ak

'I lay on the floor, watching the pictures in my memory palace spin and turn, gorgeous and bright. For the first time I could see them - not just in my mind's eye, but in reality'.

Peter Bil'ak's installation is a play on perspective. Working with the complete section of text he was given to work on, he created a large wall of reversed type. The sentence is illegible until the visitor passes by the work and looks back, at which point the text becomes readable and its meaning is revealed.

Peter Bil'ak is based in The Hague, The Netherlands working with graphic, type and editorial design. He started Typotheque type foundry in 1999, Dot Dot Dot magazine in 2000, Indian Type Foundry in 2009, and Works That Work magazine in 2012.
