The use of visual distortion is employed as a device analogous to the repeated distortion of local histories to suit emerging contexts and new audiences – meanings in the work are deliberately ambiguous, and further transfigured dependant by the viewer’s position in space and time. Large-scaled ‘anamorphic’ text are easily read from specific viewpoints yet distorted beyond recognition from other angles. Each single word is a distillation of a historically significant event or local character of the area.
