Euclid

— David Cameron Morton

TDC Prize


 

Euclid

‘Euclid’ is a series of artworks that were inspired by a book that was owned by my grandfather—Geometrical Drawing for Art Students by I.H. Morris 1910. The book contains many geometric diagrams and questions as well as exams to help students learn geometry. The diagrams where then translated and reinterpreted using an Olivetti typewriter from the 1970s resulting in 101 related artworks, all approximately 16cm square. I am truly honored to accept this award, I was not expecting this result and I was honestly just happy to enter. To my family, friends, mentors and the Tokyo TDC judges, thank you.
