Doris Boerman's prints are located on the boundary of graphic design and art. They can best be described as infographics. Only Boerman's infographics do not actually provide very useful information. She uses an interview with a pop band as a base. A colour is designated to every participant in the interview and then the whole interview is written out in coloured bars and lines. Who says what is not clear, but who has talked most becomes evident in the different colours. This way, Boerman turns a banal story into a typographic image and makes it official and formal. What's interesting is that the result is also reminiscent of the typographical lead type from the nineteen thirties.
