The Twelfth Man

‘The Twelfth Man’ experiment is a three part publication series. The subtitles in this publication are quoted from The Twelfth Man transcript, a dialogue created from a secret audio recording, between a fanatic Manchester City supporter and his team, as he watched them play on TV. The images are appropriated from the game broadcast, Monday, 15th August, 2011. Manchester City vs Swansea City. The three publications are not intended to read consecutively, but to gain a thorough understanding of The Twelfth Man experiment, all three publications should be viewed simultaneously. Copies of all three publications from The Twelfth Man are available to view online at www.fraserbingham.com
