I recently discovered the amazing typographic collages of rosalie gascoigne. Constructed from old road signs the resulting art is bold and surprising. Signage, words, colors that are designed to catch your attention to inform and navigate, are repurposed and scrambled, creating a demanding and confusing display. I'm drawn to the familiar letter forms even though the words no longer exist. Is this because I'm trained to look to these graphics for navigational answers in my every day life, or just because they are beautiful pieces of art in their own right? I think it's probably a bit of both these things.
