Imprint

The Dundee International Design Festival took place in the  beautiful old D.C. Thompson print works building and was used by to manufacture the newspapers, magazines and comics they sold all over the UK.  Imprint expands on the idea renders the english alphabet in morse code and distributes it over time and space. Letter sequences and silences create emergent patterns< “words” and sentences are randomly generated never to be repeated. 
Decoupling and distributing the letters transforms the letter/word framework from a single source linear communication to a diffuse, multiplied and environmental one.

An alphabet is used as a framework for organising and collecting symbolic sounds into words- discrete packages communicating thoughts and ideas.  

The introduction of the printing press in the 15th century revolutionised the distribution of information .

The title “Adaptive Alphabet Array” references this distribution in the space, and technology  used to identify spatial signal signatures.
 
IMPRINT 001 is inspired by the print works in Dundee. It is an acknowledgement of the people who worked here, the tools and spaces people create to extend communication, and the transformation of ideas through media.
