Head Number 2, Naum Gabo by Geoff Henman.

The image we reproduce is formed of the hand drawn symbols of the programming language that defines the digital image from which it is taken and of which it is a pastiche.  Laborious, imaginative, skilful, Geoff Henman’s work delivers accesibility, conversation and understanding.

‘http://www.tate.org.uk/art/images/work/T/T01/T01520_10.jpg (Accessed 27/09/17)’. 2020.  Ink on paper.  841 x 594 mm.

The work is from an on-going series of hand-drawn / written and digital recreations of secondary sourced internet images, utilising the images’ embedded code as a visual medium (material), the repetitive process reintroduces ‘physicality’ and ‘labour’ to the easily sourced images, through the use of an ‘unspoken’ or ‘cryptic’ language. Each title refers to the sourced web page and date accessed.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
