LEEDS CITY COUNCIL: TRANSFORM TURF-ITTI|
( Typography Art Direction Installation )
Holbeck Urban Village is located on the south side of Leeds. It has been going through substantial regeneration in recent years and to celebrate the green transformation of the area, Yorkshire Forward and Holbeck Urban Village commissioned UNIT to create a piece of public art. We came up with the idea of ‘Turf-itti’. A large scale installation made entirely of real turf and spelt out the word ‘Transform’ using a 5x7 pixel grid (the planned end use for Tower Works is for the digital sector) which when completed was 32 metres wide. The piece was constructed on the foreground of the Tower Works development and was visible from the air and surrounding tall buildings. Photography © Rick Harrison.
