LX Lecture – Giles Macdonald

The Art Workers’ Guild, London
Once upon a time people always carved inscriptions, now not so much. Inscriptions have been replaced by signage and printed and digital forms of communication. And yet still we make them.
Perhaps because inscriptions are objects and their appeal can extend beyond the words used. We sense this when we’re attracted to inscriptions carved in a language we don’t know. Or there’s the relationship between the horizontal lines of an inscription and the physical horizon around us. Inscriptions become a way of exploring the wider world, and an acknowledgement of being alive.
