Things found in library books

 

People always leave things in library books. Searching through thousands of books, I collected approximately 400 “things found in library books”. I have presented my findings in archival style wallets, bound to create my own book. Applying chapters allows the variety of objects to stand out as collections of their own. This will be an ongoing collection project throughout my life as I visit libraries across the world and discover the  small traces that people have left behind.

Look

 

Look is a collection of photographs I have taken, of things that may normally go unnoticed. I categorised the photos into coloured chapters, detailing the location of where the photo was taken and displaying the photos full-bleed on the page. I decided to make the book small as most of the photos are of small and insignificant things, but also the block of colours are attractive.

I wanted the photos to lay flat, so hand-bound the photos back-to-back.

Faces

 

This project was began at the start of my 2nd year, I was struggling with where I placed myself within my course and my practice. Feeling lost, I resorted to setting myself a side project of drawing every single person that I had a photo of. Having an ongoing project to return to whenever I got stuck has helped me to reflect on my preferred ways of working, as well as influencing other works this year.

Extrusion

 

Leading on from a collaboration with my great uncle Ray, who is a potter, I began to explore the process of clay extrusion, leading to the production of these sculptural, typographic pieces. This extruded type was used to form the word ‘rhythm;’ as reflective of Ray’s practice within ceramics. These extruded forms could also be utilised differently by other potters to celebrate the beautiful materiality of clay.

London's communities

 

This is 88 year old Hetty who has lived on the same block of flat's in Pimlico. Over a few months I became good friends and learned a lot about her. She's a proud Londoner, very strong minded but also a widow. It was her need for a companion that I wanted to photograph.

What is a kilogram?

 

Le Grande is an alphabet I designed in response to my research into the International Prototype of the Kilogram. Exploring how measurements can be communicated visually, each letter is equal height and width with exaggerated widths and minimum negative space to make the letters feel heavy. The supporting media is a compilation of my research as well as another nod to the block of Iridium that is the true Kilogram and that leads much of our lives, even if we don’t know it.

10 Acres

 

A visual investigation into a 10-acre patch of land located in West Ealing. The land has taken many forms over the past 200 years, from an orchard to a network of cottages. Once branded as a slum area known as Stevens’ Town, it is currently undergoing its third stage of regeneration where the Green Man Estate is being destroyed. Even though time has passed we are still battling with the issues surrounding affordable housing and an increasing population.

Am I the one for you?

 

A short poetic story of one dog’s determination to be adopted by you. He begs, he barks, and wants to win your heart, with his cute and quirky ways. But is this the dog for you? This project is a proposed collaboration with the animal rescue centre ‘Last Chance’, in which each year one rescued dog would feature in a new book.

Serious typeface

 

This typeface was created in response to two separate handwritten letters, written in 1971 and 2016 by my mothers in response to her matchbox collection. The typeface explores the change in movement from then to now from my mothers hand writing about her own thoughts on her matchbox collection. The matchbox collection, from nine years, reached approximately 2340 matchboxes by 1981.

Shift

 

Photographic representation of a 'shift',

the Irish slang word for kissing someone, usually in the context of a bar/club.

I photographed unsuspecting lip lockers on a student club night and then edited the photos to show only a small segment of the image, creating a grossly intriguing display.

Striptease

 

Striptease by the Polish playwright Sławomir Mrożek. An absurdist play about free will, power, submission and a fear of the unknown. The stage is bare except for two chairs and two doors. One stage left and one stage right should be in clear view of the audience. Following the stage directions, I acted out the play to create the illustrations. The book, like a theatre set, has one stage left and one stage right and is read accordingly.
