"There's so much wall on the floor"

Some slightly more professional photographs of mine and Hunter's anamorphic typography installation in the morgue corridor in Chelsea. We're still working on getting the video done of this piece which I am pretty psyched about. Last Monday we were asked by our tutors to create another installation in the vis. com. studio for our exhibition. Below is a quick snap shot of the work taking place with photos of the finished piece to follow on Wednesday when I am invidulating the exhibition.

It's more than just print

Above are the pictures from mine and Hunter's collaborative FMP final piece. We were incredibly lucky to be allowed use of a whole corridor in Chelsea College of Art & Design to carry out our anamorphic typography installation. Completed in exactly one week from start to finish our work covers the entire corridor as well as venturing into the fire escape it's without doubt the biggest work I have ever undertaken. Some of the letters cover more than one surface, with the 'M' actually hitting 4 walls overall whilst some letters are left untouched by anamorphosis and perfectly formed ('J' in the fire escape). The biggest letters without doubt are the 'A' and 'U' on opposing walls of the corridor around the 4 to 5 meter mark - "Anarchy" as Ed put it. The phrase we chose reads "it's more than just print". We chose this phrase for a number of different reasons. It's supposed to challenge what people consider to be conventional graphic design, working with flat 2D surfaces and designing business cards, posters etc. as well as being a comment on the process we used to create the piece. Below is a really rough video I took with my phone to give a bit more of an experience to the piece. Hopefully next week we will be recording it properly using a triangle frame and videocamera. It will be on show as part of the Chelsea Foundation Show from the 29th of May to the 3rd of June, which is completely free and should be great fun. For more info. go to 

Anamorphic Typography

So over the past month I have not posted anything on my blog. This is because I have been busy working on my Final Major Project which started just over 6 weeks ago and still has another two weeks to run before being marked and presented at our final exhibition. I am doing a collaborative project with my friend Hunter Thomson based around anamorphic typography which happened totally by chance as we found out we were exploring exactly the same thing since returning from easter holidays. My original project title was based around the relationship between architecture and graphic design and Hunters was around typography and shape. I am confident that we can both answer our self initiated briefs within this project whilst creating some amazing and interesting work around Chelsea. The photos above are a test piece completed last week in the Fashion studio. I have a hundred more photos of this piece taking shape but I think it's more intriguing to show the finished piece and leave you to decide how we did it.
