Materiality / Making / Meaning

Abstract

Process and materiality play an important role in the examination and practice of craft. This research examines typography as an expanded practice at the intersection of art and design where materiality is explored through screenprinting, observing the influence and impact of the process on the practice outcomes and meaning formed. The immediacy of screenprinting by hand allows for a rich and meaningful relationship to occur within the process itself but also with the materialistic qualities of printing typographic form. While finished artefacts are important, the experimental/making process is of equal importance, where the process can also become the outcome. Through the medium of screenprinting, typographic forms embrace chance collision and hybridity creating new abstract images formulating in a series of serigraphs. This research examines how typographic communication is disrupted and re-considerations of linguistic form is re-interpreted through the making process.
