richard evans: information leak

‘information leak’ by richard evans, 2009

richard evans created this typographic artwork using laser-cut letters that appear to be flowing out of a tap like water. the design was created to represent the information overload in today’s society and as evans describes ‘(how) it over-flows into our lives’. the metaphor of water overflowing from a sink is intended to communicate this. all the letters are hand painted and laser cut from wood. they have been arranged in situ to add to the  realism.
