AVM Curiosities & Type Tasting present
Pride, Prejudice & Perceptions
British Academy Literature Week 2017: Adaptations and Transformations
15th–20th May
Lates event on Friday 19th until 9.30pm

Pride, Prejudice & Perceptions is an interactive sensory exploration of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice created by AVM Curiosities & Type Tasting for the British Academy’s Literature Week. The typography found in editions of this classic novel gives each a different voice. Taking this as the template, the display will use type, sound, sight and scent to serve one story three ways.

AVM Curiosities has been exploring the relationship between art and food through a series of high-calibre events and edible interventions since 2011. Founded by food historian Tasha Marks, AVM Curiosities champions the use of food as an artistic medium, with projects ranging from museum-style exhibitions and sculptural installations to interactive lectures and limited-edition confectionery. http://www.avmcuriosities.com

Type Tasting’s Sarah Hyndman aims to change the way we think and talk about typography by showing how we interact with it in our everyday lives. She specialises in making the topic accessible with originality, humour and a dash of theatre. Sarah is involved in research into type and perception, she creates interactive events and workshops, and her second book will be published in Spring 2017. http://www.typetasting.com
