London Wall W1W

As part of their forthcoming exhibition at London’s Carroll/Fletcher gallery, artist duo Jon Thompson and Alison Craighead are taking tweets sent around the gallery and turning them into these propaganda-style posters, which will line the walls.


The work, London Wall W1W, culls Tweets sent from within a 1 mile radius of the gallery, which are then turned into posters.

The graphics will be added to the gallery’s walls throughout Thompson & Craighead’s exhibition, forming an ever-developing work.

London Wall W1W is one of several pieces in Never Odd Or Even, which is the first UK survey of Thomson & Craighead’s work.


Other pieces include More Songs of Innocence and Experience, which displays unsolicited spam email texts as though they were on a karaoke machine, and Time Machine in Alphabetical Order, which recuts the 1960s film Time Machine so that every spoken word is sequenced in alphabetical order.


Thomson & Craighead, Never Odd or Even, is at Carroll/Fletcher, 56-57 Eastcastle Street, London W1W from 24 May-6 July.
