Graphic commons: dérive of convenience

The project has moved on somewhat since I did the Easternmost onshore drift walk, as I have now categorised manyContinue reading “Graphic commons: dérive of convenience”

These interruptions can come in many forms and be the result of a variety of sources. What interests me in these observations is how meaning may be changed from that intended by the hand of the originator.Continue reading “Graphic interruptions”
