Blood and Black Lace
An Italian horror-thriller made in 1964 and directed by Mario Bava, in which a masked killer searches for an incriminating diary, killing models on their quest.
Artificial lighting throughout the film inspired typography experiments involving projected type and neon imagery that set the tone for my initial exercises on this project. As the film is set within the claustrophobic walls of a fashion house, there are mannequins scattered in every scene, whilst the masked killer carries out their brutalities on the models, the man- nequins act as silent witnesses to the acts of sin that occur throughout the film. By using hands as a signifier for fragility – some reflected the gentle, elegant poses that mannequins and models harness in their profession, whilst the other hands represent a helpless, violent pose, echoing the feelings of the victims just before their death.
Poster for ‘Common Sense’ a Communication Design fundraising event that was held at The Art School in March, as the night was a ‘sensory experience’ inspiration came from the Beano comic strip The Numskulls, in which a team of tiny human-like technicians live inside the heads of various people, running and maintaining their bodies and minds.

How The Water Feels to The Fishes
Inspired by Dave Eggers’ short story collection How The Water Feels To The Fishes I have made a collection of 13 wooden blocks; each 50×50mm block has 6 laser etched illustrations depicting one of the stories from the book. At the beginning of this project I wanted the blocks to be used for relief printing, however the process wasn’t immediate enough for the workshop, so my research led me onto a medium that was more accessible and less time consuming – rubbings. The blocks can be chosen by the participant or rolled like a dice, then placed into the wooden rubbing tool and interpreted as the participant wishes.
