Butcher's Delight

Experimental Typography & Photography

Typography Exploration Assignment
Florida Atlantic University Spring 2013
Professor: Tammy Knipp
 
Butcher's Delight is a typographic and photographic experiment.
The letter M was carved from Spam canned meat and the photograph was taken from an iPhone 4.
 
 
The assignment was typographic exploration. The project turned into a funny way to approach "art".
I felt that by carving a big, juicy, oily meat M and photographing it with an iPhone would get the point across that art can be more than just a lovely piece to look at: art's essence is the idea behind it.
The words "eat eat" were added later as a word play. It can be read as Eat Meat, Meat Meat, Eat Eat, etc.
 

This work was submitted and accepted to the 2013 Florida Atlantic University Student Exhibition.
