‘Pedagogy — STEM subjects over the arts.’
A commentary on the utopic and hopeful goals of a university, in contrast to the bureaucratic and finance-driven reality. Referring to a well-documented event in Auckland’s recent history for context; the closing of the Creative Arts libraries at the University of Auckland. This was a wake up call for both students and faculty regarding just how skewed the universities priorities have become — hopefully before it is too late. In a world moving further into technology and away from community, the need for the arts to thrive may be greater than ever.

Ridges, a typeface I created, was used to evoke a sense of freedom, whilst simultaneously having a jarring sense of irregularity and inconsistency — further emphasised by its use in this context.
