Summary TWEI 2.0 (Type will ease itself 2.0) is a newly developed artefact of inquiry that engages the reproductions of memory, meaning and experience. The work offers a new typographic mark-making proposal salvaged from ordinary articles common to routines of the everyday – street and road signage, maps, and GPS coordinates. Our experience of these articles offer familiar patterns of recognition and sites for meaning making. We keep hold of and remember the traces of colour, marks and symbols as a means to retain our experiences of places and sites of meaning. In this work TWEI 2.0 positions a cartographic reproduction of digital histories, which have been repurposed from landscapes in Kuwait and Oman. The digital based work will be projected in a large format so to be physically realized on an architectural scale representative of large maps in the gallery environment. This scenario offers a vision that is as inescapable as the signage from which it comments on and offers a consideration of the gallery wall as both a boundary for experience and the production of a site of meaning. The work in this space physically presents an installation that seeks to be at both overwhelming and intimate. Here the artist pursues direct engagement with the audience as a practice of social meaning and partnership providing a direct correlation to our familiarities with common physical signage and sign posting of our streets, corners and roads. In achieving this TWEI 2.0 proposes to highlight the fragility of meaning and the brittleness of memories.
