A Flock of Words
Morecambe, 2003

A 300 metre typographic pavement connecting the new railway station with the sea front. The path is a part of Tern, an arts based regeneration project, the theme of which is the abundant bird life of Morecambe Bay (also see Stone Jetty and Eric Morecambe Memorial Area).

The content ranges from the book of Genesis to Shakespeare to Spike Milligan, Burns and Milton. Constructed from granites, concretes, stainless steel, brass and bronze. The manufacture saw the development of new techniques that pushed the latest technology to its limits.

 

In collaboration with:
Typography – Why Not Associates
Implementation – Russell Coleman

Client:
