National used for “Diaspar”, an award-winning student project by the promising Rafe Copeland in Auckland, New Zealand.
DIASPAR is forty-five reactions to randomness generated by internationally recognised experts from dozens of different fields. These articles overlap each other in complex ways, drawing lines of connection that crosshatch into a map which must be navigated as a labyrinth. It slowly explains itself as you travel through it, but there is no end (or beginning). DIASPAR won a Gold Award at the Designers Institute of New Zealand's 2011 Best Awards.
