Archive > Read What You Look At

Exhibition runs from 27th of November to 3pm, 11th of December 2015.

Looking at the role of the word, the letter, and the use of text in visual image practices. Word, text and letter can signify and connote different sentiments, purposes and means of interpretation. There is a visual effect designated by the geometry of the letter, yet the signification in each letter begs the viewer to dig deeper. Does the letter inherently convey its definition or can it be viewed as object?

Read What You Look At explores how we understand the written word and the different ways that it is manifested in the visual arts. Is there more to a sentence or a phrase when it is published or is there less to a message when it is communicated extra-linguistically? How do we find meaning in words and elsewhere? Extending further from this, Read What You Look At also asks you to look at what you are reading. In considering this, the exhibition traverses published media and asks the viewer to contemplate the craft and consideration – both aesthetic and literary – in the construction of published media.
