MG / Matt Galloway — “You will need both hands to walk”, CG warned us as we prepared to navigate our way through the dense bush to the bottom of her Karekare property. The phrase immediately struck a chord with me — a weird mix of pragmatic directional advise and poetic realism. As we began our journey down, I became ultra-aware of every time my hands reached out to a tree trunk for support, and when we came back to the studio I continued to play with the phrase, eventually representing it through letterforms that I made by tracing the naturally occurring shapes of the very tree limbs that had aided us on our walk.

 

SL / Sonya Lacey

 

SC / Sarah Callesen — This work documents sound experienced during the walk of the property. At one minute into the walk the percentage of ocean heard versus the percentage of sound made by cycadas was roughly 20% / 80%. At 15 minutes into the walk, sound heard was roughly 30% cycadas / 50% running stream / 20% human. To visualise this information I produced a series of small sketches: linear soundwaves; circular pie charts; line charts; animated time sequences. The final drawing/chart merges data visualisation with the human experience.

Shabnam Shiwan to
begin the series,
five years on
from TypeSHED11.

A note on the
visual language
of typ gr ph c:
The right-angled
trapezoid and
two circles are
informed by the
floor plan of the
two studios, and
the plywood
remnants from
building. The
circles together
form the figure
8; the holes
match the number
of consonsants;
which in turn,
sets the number
of participants,
four in each
studio space.

»work out work«
with Catherine Griffiths & Tino Graß (GERMANY)

Friday 13th — Saturday 14th February, 2015
8 places: full + 1
NZD $750 + gst per participant

An intensive two days with Catherine Griffiths and Tino Graß (graphic designer and teacher in visual communication and typography at Düsseldorf)
will examine the shape of abstraction and spatial dimension in typo/graphic/design terms by using the surroundings — be it physical in nature, or a sub/consciousness of the social,
political and cultural landscape — as points of reference. To consider elements that are present, seen as trivial and therefore easily overlooked, in the making of work. The projection of individual thought, reading between the lines, and seeing a shift in scale towards some kind of collective outcome are essential to the dynamic.

The workshop will be held in the two studios — Bruce Connew generously gives over his and becomes host — and will include lectures, an evening film
screening, forest/beach scramble/walk, and plenty of
Bruce’s very good coffee, lunch, wine, beer that will only ascend conversation.

For more on Tino, view www.tinograss.de ........
Editorial and exhibition design includes »Typorama, the Graphic work of Philippe Apeloig«, 2015, and »Schriftgestalten, über Schrift und Gestaltung« published by Niggli, 2008. Current work includes a project with students designing a temporary way-finding system for the upcoming Sigmar Polke exhibition at the Ludvig Museum, Cologne.

 

There will be a physical
outcome, the details
of which will be announced
at the workshop

bring: notebook, drawing
instruments, any other
tools of choice (camera,
iPhone, scissors, scalpel,
French curves); graph paper
and other materials will
be supplied
