Using the material that tamed the wild west, designer Andrew Effendy has created an artistic font using steel wire. Pulled across two wooden posts, the wires are twisted to resemble the spiny fencing, with longer strands at the barbed sections forming the letters A through Z. The font has an undeniably sinister look to it. With such an iconic form, the work could easily be interpreted as a commentary on language barriers or how the written word and it’s form can either help or hinder dialogue.
