When London-based graphic design student Pia Hakko isn’t busy studying, she spends her time creating these gorgeous and striking collages.
Using symbol, color and space, she creates thought provoking, explosive images that live between fantasy and truth. More after the jump:

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Aaron Durand. I’ve been following Aaron’s beautiful photography on Tumblr for some time and discovered that he also works at Twitter. So last night we went out with my friend Nick Bilton (who introduced us and is also an awesome photographer). Aaron taught me how to take photographs of trains at night with long exposures like this one (24 seconds). It was really cool to learn something new, in a fun environment while making new friends along the way.
“4D Typography is the result of intersectioning, in an orthogonal way in space, two extrusions of the same character, which allows the spectator to read it from, minimum, two different positions in space.
An observer searching to enjoy a particular architecture, is forced to move around and through it. The change in perspective generates new spaces in which light acts in different ways. In this case, it is the typography who makes the effort of abandoning its two dimensions to approach the architectural sense. It does not resign with a third dimension; a fourth one is necessary to complete the reading possibilities. By hanging the typography, the reader is allowed to surround the characters in order to understand all their shapes.”
