“A Humument” Art Project
The Deputy Grecians (Year 12) took inspiration from “A Humument” by the artist Tom Phillips, who altered every page of an old Victorian book in 1966. The students transformed pages of a second-hand book using paint, collage and drawing whilst leaving specific words to reveal a new narrative. These selected words now provide the inspiration for the rest of their Pre-U course, in a similar fashion to the “Oblique Strategies” of Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt.
