Speculative brand identity for Ai Weiwei’s Bare Life exhibit at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum. A cohort of classmates and I collaborated to design this flexible system to emulate Ai Weiwei’s practice of breaking and rebuilding. 

Inspired by how Ai deconstructs traditional materials to repurposes them for new meaning, I designed the custom typeface, Wei Displei from a simple repeated module.
