My name is Samad Jble, I’m a French multidisciplinary graphic designer based in London. This is a series of mixed media illustrations called “CORPUS”. During the process of this series, I’ve been thinking of our relationship to the body in our social media age (images of us are uploaded, deconstructed, then reassembled on someone else phone) and the meaning of beauty in this digital and photoshopped world (is geometry the key? or curves and lines? Can it be sexy if the brain recognise a shape with skin texture?…) It’s a “Body” design exploration with limited shapes and lines.
In linguistics, a corpus (plural corpora) or text corpus is a large and structured set of texts (in my exercise I’m replacing texts by lines and shapes). They are used to do statistical analysis and hypothesis testing, checking occurrences or validating linguistic rules within a particular language territory (or here the female body). It is interesting to note that the Latin word “corpus” gave the French word “corps” which stand for Body.
