My work explores the intersection of print, technology and community. Responding to the impact technological change has on the ways in which we interact with and receive information, the intended and unintended outcomes of this change.

Stories of print, radicalism and Bradford

This project considers the interplay of print, radicalism, and the city of Bradford. The resulting publications can be read alone or in series, taking the reader from international modernism to anarchist satire via photo reproduction, curry, and enriched uranium. The pieces paint the portrait of a city that has and continues to make rich contributions to national, and international art and design.

All publications

These are the five publications produced so far for the Bradford project.

Bismilla, Paolozzi!

Publication exploring the link between a Bradford curry house and Eduardo Paolozzi via international modernism and post-colonial migration.

We developed it twenty years ago...

This publication exposes the links between the former Bradford print firm Lund Humphries and the state by exploring their involvement with TUBE ALLOYS, Britain's WW2 era atomic weapons / energy program.

Penrose Annual Adverts

This publication contains a selection of adverts from the Penrose Annual, a journal published and produced by Lund Huphries of Braford from 1895 to 1973. It contained articles on the the latest innovations in graphic design and print as well as adverts for all the newest products.

Read

This essay poster traverses the conceptual gap between Bradford's modernist and anarchist print outputs.

Directives from the R Supward Press

Combining scanned directives from The Cunningham Amendment, an anarchist letterpress journal which called Bradford it's home for a number of years, this publication threads another link between Bradford's modernist and anarchist printed outputs.

Posters — stories of print, radicalism and Bradford

To accompany the publications I have produced a series of posters which summarise my project exploring the intersection of print, radicalism, and the city of Bradford. Elements from the research itself form the textural backdrop upon which the statements have been printed.
