- 46th Annual UCDA Design Competition

Designed while at Thirst
The Idol Structures exhibition by Chicago-based artist Matt Siber, probes the systems of corporate and mass-media communication that permeate the urban landscape. Rather than focusing on the message itself, Siber emphasizes the physical infrastructure that delivers visual messaging.
While at Thirst, Bud Rodecker and Magalena Wistuba designed the exhibition catalog as a collection of architectures that reflect the work they’re presenting. Essays are collected into a booklet, Photographs are each printed on individual cards, and sculptures are printed on an accordion fold. The pieces are assembled into a wood veneer slipcase that recalls the materiality of Siber’s sculptures.
