Gemeli Mono

Specimen

Monograph
Aesthetic response or functional theories of art is the most intuitive theories of art. The term ‘aesthetic’ refers to a type of phenomenal experience and aesthetic definitions identify artworks with artifacts intended to produce aesthetic experiences. Nature can be beautiful and it can produce aesthetic experiences, but nature does not possess the function of producing those experiences. For such a function, an intention is necessary, and thus agency.
In Beardsley’s words, something is art just in case it is “either an arrangement of conditions intended to be capable of affording an experience with marked aesthetic character or (incidentally) an arrangement belonging to a class or type of arrangements that is typically intended to have this capacity”. Painters arrange “conditions” in the paint/canvas medium, and dancers arrange the “conditions” of their bodily medium, for example.
According to Beardsley’s first disjunct, art has an intended aesthetic function, but not all artworks succeed in producing aesthetic experiences whatsoever. The second disjunct allows for artworks that were intended to have this capacity, but failed at it (bad art). Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain is the paradigmatic counterexample to aesthetic definitions of art. Apparently, Duchamp bought an ordinary urinal from a plumbing supply and smuggled it into an art gallery.

About this font

Gemeli is built upon the same simple, human framework as its counterpart Cogito, but its vertical stroke endings lend it a crisper, machined appearance and strikingly different personality. This is an attribute it shares with modern Humanist sans serifs like Frutiger, but this creation is just a tad looser, reflecting some of the informal air of another vertically-sheered sans: Antique Olive. These multi-faceted design qualities are made even more useful by Gemeli’s extended family tree — five weights and italics, a monospaced companion (Gemeli Mono), and the ink-trapped Gemeli Micro, a small-print agate that doubles as a display face.
