Topographic Tweets partnered Richard Wolfstrome with Chalk Architects to create an installation on the Chalk studio window for The Welcome Trail, curated by Gem Barton, as part of the Love Architecture Festival 2012 in Brighton, UK and Threshold. A ‘pop-up’ installation taking just ten days from idea to finished artwork, it engages and creates a community narrative with the face of architecture.
Topographic Tweets invited tweeters to express an opinion, a view, an idea, contentious or otherwise, about architecture, which were designed into a typographic urban landscape. Strips of texts rising up the window in different shades of white, grey and frost give the impression of a skyline where the lettering, absent their counters (spaces in letters), ‘light’ up the architectural form. Fabrication and installation by Nik the Brush.
