Thinking Outside The Box
State of Emergency - Contemporary Art Micro-Commissions
The Box invited applications from artists based in Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall, to consider how Covid-19 has impacted on our notion of freedom.
During lockdown, I was furloughed from my main contract so I designed and created a series of 9 bold & colourful typographic screen-printed A3 posters, responding to familiar words & phrases associated with the global pandemic and UK lockdown.
My mock up designs were inspired by The Box’s State Of Emergency brief, but didn’t actually follow the brief. That was a concious decision. Sometimes you have to think outside the box, and I just wanted to play. Ultimately, I enjoyed the process.
