Homfirth Arts Festival 2012

The Nook Brewhouse, Holmfirth has specially brewed two festival beers, Twisted In and Sedition. I’ve designed the pump label image for Twisted In (a light ale, 4.0%). Both beers are being served as a draught at the Towser Bothy, Carniceira and the Nook during the festival.

Homfirth Arts Festival 2012

Writing Frame is an installation for this year’s Holmfirth Arts Festival.

It’s in response to a call for works that respond to the 200th anniversary of the the Luddite uprising. Writing Frame is a series of linked A1 ‘cards’ that cascades off a simple wooden frame. Punched into the paper is a continuous text that appears to ‘run on’ and reads:

‘Enoch hath made them and Enoch shall break them.’

Enoch was the name given to the iron sledgehammers used by the Luddites to smash the frames which were also made by the same Enoch Taylor of Marsden. I was going to get the paper laser cut but it cost too much and so instead I’ve used a dot matrix font as a template, drawing and cutting out the letter forms myself by hand.
