Description

The writings/drawings of Æthel were made in Adobe Illustrator within a set of simple rules. Mancini downloaded free display fonts, converted these to “Outlines” and virtually hacked the letters apart. He then precariously recombined the fragments into tangles. Readers/viewers, will recognize the ubiquitousness of the display fonts – seen in many commercial signs every day.

“Ideological chimæras, like counter-intuitive puns on fatigued scraps of sagacity, they move towards the strange (by attraction or repulsion) without escaping the banal determinations of a disfluent commercial design vernacular.” – the artist

Edition of 20, signed and numbered.
