Following on from my previous post (click here), documenting my work for a new project at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, responding to one of the current exhibitions on display; Moore in Focus - A Friendship in Letters here is an update on the work I have been making.

Alongside the print I have been working on a sculpture piece, entitled It was so nice to meet you. The piece again uses data collected from asking twenty people to write "It was so nice to meet you" on a postcard (data comprises of measurements of the length of the writing of each person's handwriting of the text, click here to view postcards). In this piece are nineteen pieces of string which are the length of the lines of the writing of nineteen of the handwritten pieces of text "It was so nice to meet you".
