Visual reinterpretation of Einstein's Dreams, a book written by Alan Lightman. The book is a collection of fictional short stories, which portray a series of surrealistic dreams experienced by the young Albert Einstein during his studies on the Theory of Relativity.
The book talks about life and death. The main character in every story is time. In each story, time assumes a different form, which influences the lives and days of the characters.
The main concept for the visual translation of the stories is their surrealist nature. Every story was designed from a traditional grid system, which would then be deconstructed according to the specific nature of each story.
Uniformity is created from the grid and the typography, while the deconstruction manifests each story's unique character.
