If You Could Collaborate

If you Could Collaborate is an exhibition aiming to provide a platform for the finest creatives from all over the world to question their conventional working methods and outcomes. The contributors have been challenged to produce something a little unexpected, by working with a partner of their choosing from any discipline, profession or background. There is no brief to answer, or format to honour – the only limit being the enterprise and imagination of the artists involved.

Photographer John Hooper and film maker  Michael Moloney made a time-lapse film set 2500ft up a big hill in the Great Langdale area of The Lake District. They shot continuously for 24 hours with the camera rotating twice through 360°.  A great short that really captures the cyclical nature of our world.


The following was a submission by Craig Ward & Sean Freeman & Alison Carmichael. Craig Ward is perhaps best known under his pseudonym, ‘Words are Pictures’. As his self-dubbed moniker suggests, he’s a typography nut who is excited by the forms and shapes of letters. This intrigue allows him to transform standard words into fully-realised, artistic statements.Not content with just one partner, Craig drafted in the typographic expertise of Sean Freeman and Alison Carmichael to come up with what they have named ‘Calligraffiti’.

We love it.
