*David Osbaldeston and Will Holder

Chromoluc self-embossed cover by David Osbaldeston
15 full color images, 198 black/white images.

Arranged as a palindrome where text and image relentlessly interweave, Inflection Sandwich is a looping sequence of co-ordinated drawings, sculpture, typography and animation.

In a world where constructions of meaning evolve through an increasingly pluralised, digitised and mediated present, David Osbaldeston takes established modes of artistic practice as a point of departure. With subtle humour, the legacies of conceptualism, word games, repetition and image recognition are toyed with in a bid to highlight ways in which inherited forms of communication become re-authored.

If Orwell said that language should be as clear as a pane of glass then Inflection Sandwich is the dirt on the window, taking pleasure in the interference between modes of perception, systems of communication, and the subsequent confusion that unfolds.
