Emily Floyd, A Strategy to Infiltrate the Homes of the Bourgeoisie (2005)

Australian visual artist Emily Floyd marries typography with installation in her practice, creating a dynamic range of works that draw their influence from the text-based Conceptual Art that dominated the 1960s. In these examples, language and form combine to create narratives that can be physically engaged with, not just observed. Words come to life and have a presence that transcends language and controls space and the viewers wandering through it.
