The Hepworth Prize for Sculpture by Passport
“We came up with an idea to pay homage to both the iconic architecture of The Hepworth Wakefield and the subject matter of ‘sculpture’ by creating a set of 3D forms that were influenced by the recognisable angular qualities of the building itself. We then photographed these forms from multiple perspectives and traced over them to create dynamic, geometric shapes. This ‘wireframe’ would remain consistent but the angle from which it is viewed would always be different, much in the way that an audience often interacts with sculpture. To complement the wireframe structures we created a custom typeface, whose letterforms intend to occasionally subvert the expected; replacing the idea of standardised structures with more eccentric, playful forms.”
