Gordon Young is a visual artist
who focuses on creating art for the public domain. His work ranges from sculptures to typographic pavements for places as disrelated as government headquarters and village squares. The common denominator for all projects is the basis of relevance to the surroundings.

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.
