You Blow Me Away

by Craig Ward / Words Are Pictures

Collect your choice of gallery quality Giclée, or fine art prints custom trimmed by hand in a variety of sizes with a white border for framing.


This image, one of my personal favourites, was created in London in 2009 as a collaboration and legibility experiment with the kinetic still-life photographer Jason Tozer.

The typography - set simply in Helvetica - was screen printed onto twenty sheets of glass and a variety of objects were fired through them. A sound reactive flash captured the glass at various stages of destruction and of the 20 images captured, this proved to be our favourite and the best interpretation of the phrase.

You can view the making of this project at http://wordsarepictures.wordpress.com/2009/02/18/the-making-of-you-blow-me-away/

I love this and I found this last week without knowing it was from you. Glad I put a name on it now.
