From music to philosophy to art, Jorinde Voigt's works on paper are not only aesthetically pleasing, but are also considered effective carriers of information. Voigt found the written mode of transmitting information, as practiced in universities, too limiting, so she transitioned from her studies in philosophy and literature to the visual arts. Inspired by musical notation, she succeeds in working through complex philosophical themes through visual language and tactfully applied handwriting.
