Time Out put the exhibition in their ‘top 5 art exhibitions’ to see on its opening weekend. And we had a feeling from the start it was going to be great fun.
The exhibition turns the Inigo Rooms at Somerset House into an outpost of a post-apocalyptic world in the wake of a technological meltdown. Inspired by this world controlled by robots, where only basic technology is available to humans, we reproduced images of two of the robots using a DIY screen print effect. The typography had to stay within the guidelines of the Kings College brand, but we apocalypticised the King’s typeface it by turning it into a rubber stamp and force justifying the lines of type to reflect the staccato speaking voices of the robots.
You can meet the robots in their special promotional short film they have released on YouTube.
