The earth tilted, borders are being drawn in sharp angles by black ink, the purple shade of a scarf, perhaps, on top of the strict lines. If above me, if below, like an island in the sky. I live here. Budapest. Forrai Ferenc’s series.

146 years ago, in 1873 on the 17th of November Buda, Óbuda, and Pest united.

„S mind nősz időben s térben magasabbra,
hatalmasodsz a síkon s halmokon;
nagy éjszakánkban tündökölsz, harapva
a vak homályt, mint tengeri torony;
vigyázz, milyen fényt szórsz e földdarabra!
S e roppant morgás: ezrek lihegése,
rohangáló robotja úgy szakad
össze egyetlen vad dörömbölésbe,
mint zengő tengerbe a sok patak,
s e zúgásnak nincs kezdete, se vége.”


Square-angle is a symbol of togetherness. The belonging and identity of nations is presented by the unique code system of the series formed by shapes and colors through the literature of the Visegrad countries. Citizens, four times: Warsaw, Prague, Bratislava, Budapest. Four cities, four colors, one section. Making four cities of four countries four-angled; a common conglomerate.

The latest parts of Square-angle released on HYPEANDHYPER are about Budapest.

The parts already released can be viewed HERE.

Our interview made with Forrai Ferenc in relation to the Square-angle series under the title “Squares of Budapest with a view” can be read HERE.

Brutal packagings

Truth be told, all of us must be kind of sick of all the packaging/brand/product redesign concepts, as everyone tried to stand out with this genre in either period of the “high school – third-year university student” life phase, approximately with the same efficiency as we all did something
