Joy of Living I

In 2011, London Design Guide editor Max Fraser set a challenge to a cross-section of new and established UK designers to create an artwork that expressed what the ‘Joy of Living’ meant to them – using an A4 sheet of graph paper.
An exhibition at Somerset House launched the

project and each artwork was sold in aid of Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres.

Two Create's submission statement: “We aimed to break the formality of the graph paper by hand drawing a rotating tile spontaneously across the

grid. This reflects our pathway through life, where a series of decisions take you through life's twists and turns, making up a the bigger picture as a whole. Like the artwork, life's beauty comes from the diversity and uniqueness of one's path.”
