Three fish

Or should that be “three fishes”…?

According to Grammarist, “The plural of fish is usually fish, but fishes has a few uses. In biology, for instance, fishes is used to refer to multiple species of fish. For example, if you say you saw four fish when scuba diving, that means you saw four individual fish, but if you say you saw four fishes, we might infer that you saw an undetermined number of fish of four different species.”

Eric Hu: Archigram poster

Eric Hu: Archigram poster

A 17 ft poster by Eric Hu celebrating the works of 1960’s avant-garde architecture group, Archigram. The poster features a customized typeface, stacked vertically and then collaged and intermixed with pieces and artifacts of Archigram’s drawings.

Metaphorically, this creates an entirely new megastructure and through the scale of the poster, the work reflects the rigor and passion of Archigram. The poster is then also designed so that it can be folded like an accordion and used as a book.
