Tractatus Logico–Philosophicus
Creative Response, Typograpy

The project is a graphic interpretation of Ludwig Wittgenstein’s influential work on language and communication. The way Wittgenstein’s work is written forms a system of declarative statements. By focusing on the structure of the text (use of decimal figures indicating the logical importance of each proposition), I produced a diagram in a form of a horizontal scroll,mapping all the numbers of the propositions. It was later used as a guide to design a layout system for a book – each decimal is given a separate column to follow vertically through the book. The work aims to offer a fresh look on Wittgenstein’s philosophy and present the complexity of language as a structured system of communication.
