AGENTS RESEARCH


CHRISTOPHER WREN

ST PAULS CATHEDRAL, LONDON

TOWERS & STEEPLES:

Wren designed 51 churches after the Great fire of 1666 in London. Through this study of type he produced a series of variations of towers and steeples which are spread throughout the London skyline. Each design unique in regards to its detail, window composition and scale, while all retaining common elements of symmetry and balance.


ED RUSCHA

TWENTYSIX GASOLINE STATIONS


CATALOGUE:

Ed Ruscha is an American artist obsessed with documenting type. In the photographic series twentysix abandoned gas stations (1962), each image framed to depict the object sitting within its landscape, creating a catalogue of these urban ruins sitting idle in the vast landscape of Route 66. Furthermore, he was very interested in the layout of these images, either across a double spread page or some laid out side by side. This gives the series a standard format where all images can be directly compared with each other. In 1967 he produced a book titled thirtyfour parking lots which was similar example of a catalogue with a series of images of carparks taken from aerial shots.

RACHEL WHITEREAD

HOUSE, LONDON, 1993 HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL, VIENNA, 2000


SOILID/VOID:

‘House’ depicts the void from the original Victorian building which used to stand on this site in London, which now is part of a park. Whitereads work depicts the inversion of space, creating sculpture from the ‘void’ space.


JIM LAMBIE

HOUSE, LONDON, 1993


OFFSET:

Through repetition and variation of line, Lambie creates visually exciting places that emphasis the vertical elements that connect to the floor surface. This almost ‘ripple like effect magnifies the effect of the structural columns. Furthermore, the lines exaggerate subtleties such as small changes in the outline of the room
