The Atrium, Te Aro Campus

Issued as 26 letters of the Latin alphabet in uppercase and lowercase, these singular works are the outcomes of research and examination into the letterform in relation to its graphic, spatial and contextual qualities, whether historic, contemporary, social, cultural, political or, any other point of interest. Constructed collectively in three groups, the installation itself is a large-scale composition of letterforms, with each group occupying a segment of the Atrium space, as redefined in plan. Consideration is given to the placement and interactive relationships between each of the works across three media categories [analogue/digital/object]. In doing so, Aa–Zz, with the project’s anomalies, offers myriad ways of seeing type as graphic: type as language.
