Vesper is a multidisciplinary biannual scientific journal published by the Department of Architecture and Arts at the University of Venice. It looks at the relationships between forms and processes of thought and of design and although it's fair to call this an academic examination of the arcane, it's also a project that will attract anyone with a curious mind.
Vesper hosts a wide spectrum of narratives, writing and stylistic differences, ‘privileging the visual intelligence of design, of graphic expression, of images and contaminations between different languages.’ The journal is conceived as a series of thematic issues, each one divided into sections to offer diverse perspectives and to search out reverberations between ideas and reality change, connections between tangible facts and their potentials, transformative prospects and collective perception.
The eighth issue of Vesper is dedicated to the theme Vesper itself to illuminate a range of meanings, definitions and phenomena: the design of time, twilight, the duality of West and East, the double as a condition and as a strategy, Venus and Venice, the sunset as a propitious direction, the drawing of shadows, camouflage and Vesper Lynd and the Vesper cocktail (both inventions from the pen of Ian Fleming).
