Typography is something i am going to push hard to learn in detail this year. Peter Saville's design for Always Now the first album Section 25 released on Factory Records is an example of how the use of words can be artwork as well as information. I need to get my hands on this record


The Paul Smith LA store, this didn't seem real at first glance. The simplicity combined with the 'paul smith' logo. I remember seeing a small house in Dungeness that had a strip for a window, very voyeuristic.

Powers Of Ten

I watched this for the first time at the beginning of my first term and have forgotten about it till now. It shows to an extent (and pretty unfathomable one) how everything is connected. Keeping in mind the brief that Christian Kusters has set us. I am going to explore connections through a journey, i have been heavily inspired my the work of walking artist Richard Long, i want to see how i can develop a journey into something that can be communicated.

Poster For Print

This is the PNG of the image file type that actually works for this blog after days of trying. It show the colour and how the dictionary should be used.

Mark Wallinger The Russian Linesman & Sentence

Annoyingly i cannot find the photos i took at this exhibition they are lost somewhere in the depths of my hard drive, however this image taken from, shows the russian linesman at the 1966 world cup final. Victory or not.

In this exhibition at the Hayward Gallery i found the juxtaposition of image and language quite compelling, to extent that their was no relationship. I would be listening to a piece of writing by James Joyce and be looking at scientific photographs of heads from the 19th century. The idea that i am looking at is the juxtaposition of language. The power of two different sets of thoughts placed together as one. In this case i have used a 'The Ballad Of Persse O'Reilly' by James Joyce and an article from this saturdays guardian about 'OMG: Kirstie Allsop Caught on Twitter'. I have used the first four words of each alternate line and placed them together. This can also allude to the surrealist automatic writing technique, but i am interested how dfferent sets of languages from completely different context and times read together. I want to explore this for the exhibition on the theme 'Sentence'.
