Charity print

Following on with my ideas about data, place and communication I have been printing onto the index from an atlas, contrasting the uniformity and detail of the locational information with large forms of fractured letter pieces.  One of the results has been this set of prints, each with unique locations listed as it is printed on a different page of the index.  Studied in detail it is possible to find familiar locations between the barriers of the over-printed layer, giving a point of reference to the page.  Viewed as a whole there are visual references to printed newspapers, leading to the expectation of a message to be deciphered from the broken text.

Location - detail

In association with a fundraising event in memory of a good friend who died 2 years ago, I am selling this edition of prints in aid of the charities Breakthrough Breast Cancer, The Haven and Shelter.  

Edition of 15, letterpress print (plum black ink on book pages), measuring 17.5 x 26.8cm, £15 unframed (inc. postage).
Larger or higher resolution images available on request.  

Location - shown in 21 x 30cm (A4) frames
