For this year’s London Design Festival 2011 graphic artist Noma Bar will be creating an interactive art-making machine for the event called ‘Cut It Out’. It is a specially commissioned, *Heath Robinson-esque embossing device /sculpture in the shape of a giant dog, which will allow visitors to feed paper, rubber and other materials into its mouth to produce their own cut-out Noma Bar images. The images will be signed and numbered by the artist as part of a limited edition series
(*William Heath Robinson was an English illustrator and cartoonist who was known for his drawings of eccentric machinery.)
For the event, Noma will also be exhibiting a range of new prints, displaying an imaginative mixture of ‘multistability’ imagery, with negative space playing a major role.
Cut It Out will be running from September 17th through September 30th, 2011. For the duration of the London Design Festival, a separate section of the gallery will be devoted to a display of new work by Outline Editions’ artists at the forefront of graphic art, including Anthony Burrill, Kate Moross, Klaus Haapaniemi and Beyond the Valley.
