'Text'ured Wallpaper

I have been working with Carinna Parraman on The Wallpaper Project, a research project in collaboration with Roland DG (UK) Ltd. With my wallpaper I wanted to utilise the ability to build up layers of both white ink and clear matt varnish to create texture. After numerous tests using different layering combinations we settled on a winning formula made up of 25 layers.

Playing with the idea of text creating texture and with a lighthearted nod to the trend that was so popular in the 60's and 70's the words for me could only really come from one place, classic Bond, and more specifically Roger Moore 'Bond' (the ultimate Bond) so the theme tune to the spy who loved me seemed very fitting.

Dead Good

Here are my 3D printed (rapid prototyped) skulls. We are hoping to print around 50 smaller ones in different colours. Many thanks to Dave Huson and Peter Walters.
