The first of a series of three artworks. The title font Macula is based on the “impossible” Penrose triangle (or Penrose tribar). Each 12cm high letter was cut from 4mm thick plywood and individually suspended by a wire from a 2m wooden frame, then the typography was positioned and adjusted by hand and judged by eye. I have further explored this theme of beauty, being a result of imperfection and random unintended detail with the artwork for Part 2 and Part 3. Visit the website.
