Santiago da Silva’s work concentrates on book design, printed matter, communication, and display systems within the cultural and contemporary art context. The work is based on research, experimentation, and dialogue, leading to a varied visual vocabulary, informed by the content and character of each project. He is the co-founder and editor of Object Notes, a platform for investigating the notions of handcraft and labor in contemporary art and design.
