Shimon Attie is a visual artist making evocative work using photographs, video installations, new media, and works on paper.  The Museum of Contemporary Photography described about Attie's work, “Concerned with questions of memory, place, and identity, Shimon Attie gives visual form to both personal and collective memories by introducing histories of marginalized and forgotten communities into the physical landscape of the present.” My role in this project was to design the typography that appears on the light boxes and on the tablet.
