Inspired, they tell us, by Unit Editions’ Supergraphics book, design studio Evidently has created its own 2.2 x 2.75 metre, eye-popping ‘supergraphic’ using approximately 600 metres of yellow and white electrical tape…
Designed by Evidently’s Jack Plant and constructed by Plant along with colleagues Tom Browning, Kate Skinner and Anne Doerenbecherthe, the graphic piece began as lots of evenly spaced strips of yellow tape applied to a blank expanse of studio wall space. Then, by applying yellow and white tape on top of the base layer of stripes at intersecting, 90 degree angles, the studio’s name has been created. Don’t stare too long though – it may hurt your eyes!
Here’s a making-of film documenting the process by Rob McDougal:
“It was really fun to do,” says Browning of the project. “We travelled approximately 500 vertical metres in the awesome cherry-picker we hired and used 30 rolls of electrical tape in the production of the piece.”
