The commission was to create handmade graphics, to be photographed and then used in the poster, programme, and ticketing materials for this film and concert event.
I researched the history of the Quatuor piece, which was composed and first performed in a prisoner of war camp. Conflicting themes emerged of musical freedom and physical incarceration.
Taking the keywords handmade, fractured, distressed, and dramatic, I used board and modelling wire to craft razor wire and the four instruments of the quartet, then customised the type to match.
