Lateral Movements in Multifaceted Time and Space is a Graphic Design MFA thesis of Ji Kim at the Rhode Island School of Design. This book is a collection of investigation and experimentation toward the reasons and consequences of the dominant single point of view in the current time.
The distribution of the internet and satellite photography has heightened the perception, interaction, and access to the world—time and space have become flexible. The book introduces four movements; orient, shift, calibrate, soar that change common perception toward dynamic and multiple perspectives. Both in physical and digital space, the designer creates visual environments into which people can enter, inviting them to maneuver the alternative directions of reality and visibility.
The book is typeset withPirelli, designed by Jung Myung Lee of Jung-Lee Type Foundry. Pirelli is selected because of its playful, eccentric, and contemporary feeling, which perfectly fits the concept of the thesis aesthetically.
