One Word at A Time is a classic improv theatre exercise:
in a circle, a story is started, with each person in turn adding one word.
Join us and dress up as a human letter as part of a typographic performance;
form words with other visitors and watch as a story unfolds through the evening.
Each word will be photographed so that you can decide what word to contribute next, and you can follow the story live on my twitter account @amndne.
See/Read you there!

So last Sunday was the launch of the second edition of The Big Letter Hunt ( also back on our webshop!), in the context of Hackney with a Twist, organised by L’Entrepôt.
Rute Nieto Ferreira, who I imagined Tower Block Books Publishing with, and I had also prepared various workshop activities for young hunters: Letter Hunting in a book, Letter Hunting/coloring in large urban landscape photographs, and dressing up as letters, with some interesting typographic interpretations there!

A really nice alchemy ran through that Summer School workshop on sunday; by the time I picked up my camera, I went back outside to find people who didn’t know each other performing words and letters, and brainstorming on possible messages involving alternative post-Olympic messages and the Pussy Riot.
The Free Pussy Riot one, below, has since been very broadly shared by Amnesty International UK, amongst others, on Twitter.
The workshop was curated by George Vasey; Summer School was curated by Rosie Cooper & realised by Fay Nicolson.

Want to protest? Tell a story?
We are looking for between 10-15 volunteers to join us for a performative typographic workshop at the Gerald Moore gallery on Sunday August the 12th. Working with the body’s potential to form new words through movement and gesture, it will be your chance to take part in a living work of art.
I will be leading a three hour workshop and participants will be invited to work together to create a collaborative public performance on the day.

This picture of human arabic typography, reading تضاريس/Relief/Tadariss, was taken on the first day of a seminar on 3D typography I gave at the Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts in Beirut, Lebanon.
Working with Masters students in Art Direction and Multimedia, we a created choreography-based pluri-alphabetic piece allowing a group of people posing as human letterforms to express a word in English, then in French, and finally in Arabic in a few moves, reflecting on the Lebanese multi-lingual culture.

The ALBA, where I was giving a one-week seminar on typography last month,

For this occasion, the school asked me and the students to prepare something
to go on the massive banner that will cover the building during the festivities;
above is a sneak pic of the making of.
