Message

Faculty and artist Victoria Fu's work on view in the "LOREM IPSUM" exhibition at the Marginal Utility gallery in Philadelphia, PA from April 5 - May 19, 2013. Opening reception on Friday, April 5, 6-9 p.m.

“Lorem ipsum” is a popular filler text to test fonts and graphic layouts–”neutral” words to not distract from the visuals. It signals emptiness to the contemporary viewer, yet it has a source meaning taken from Cicero: “Dolorem ipsum,” translated as “pain itself.”
