David Morton — Euclid
Posted on March 16, 2015
David Morton presents the final typewriter series.
Euclid is the fourth & final series of (101) typewriter artworks from my 2014 Honours Research ‘Looking East with My Feet in the West’.
‘Euclid’ is a series of artworks that were inspired by a book that was owned my grandfather – ‘Geometrical Drawing for Art Students’ by L.H Morris 1910. The book contains many geometric diagrams and questions as well as exams to help students learn geometry. The diagrams where then translated and reinterpreted using an Olivetti typewritter from the 1970s resulting in 101 related artworks, all approximately 16cm square.
