Jamie Holcombe and William Holcombe
We became interested in the notion of text as object, and sought out examples of words on public display in our community that are also, quite literally, objects. We settled on a couple of buildings in Wagga Wagga that feature large letters in high relief, and we set about altering the “truth” of those locations. We used the photographic medium to give our images a convincing, credible appearance, but then used digital imaging to rearrange the text objects to form partially self-referential anagrams.
“WW” is a tribute to the grand old iconic 2WG radio station sign and its intrinsic connection with the Wagga Wagga locale.
