— Damian Ortega at RISD Museum of Art
Damian Ortega’s installation in the space are deploying the principle
of fragmentation and spatial dispersion of forms. How would he
fragment letter forms? How would he allow viewers to experience this
process of deconstruction and perception? And how does it feel to
transfer three dimensional forms onto a flat surface? Even we’re looking
at the two dimensional poster, we can experience tension between the
three dimensional letterforms and the flatness of the canvas, between
colors, clarity and experiment, information and interpretation.
— Missed Connections–Something has disappeared: Book, Graduate Studio II.
This project was originally inspired by photographs of abandoned places. This places evoke abandoned stories. Similar abandoned stories appear every day in category "Missed connections". My intention was to create a chronologically ordered documentation that will show interaction with these people. These messages will never find the intended recipient and remain abandoned in the virtual space. Yet thanks to this virtual space they can be shared with others.

— Book cover "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer"
Submision for Penguin´s contest to design a new cover. My intent was to reinvent Watteau´s Jupiter and Antiope painting, which was a bit over-used in older versions of the book cover. Instead of to continue this cliché trend I rather used an aggressive liquid water spray to damage texture of Watteau´s painting to express murderer´s frustration.

— Design Contest: Brno Philharmonic Identity
I have found a principle based on the research done by a German physicist and musician Ernst Chladni. He discovered that when sound at a particular frequency is applied to a medium geometrical shapes are produced. These shapes change according to the tonality and volume. I found the potential in these shapes, because they were geometrically even, “natural” product and also simply transformated to other forms like patterns or objects. See video below demonstrating principles of how easily and playfully could be various patterns created.
