It Only Took a War

The first in a series of artworks for Colin Smith’s trilogy ‘It Only Took a War’. The title font Macula, based on the ‘impossible’ Penrose triangle or Penrose tribar, by Jacques Le Bailly. Each 12cm high letter was cut from 4 mm thick plywood and individually suspended by a wire from a 2 meter wooden frame, then the typography was positioned and adjusted by hand, and photographed against the studio black chalk-wall.
