Bradley Basso's 'Calligraphic Tapestry' was a public art commission for a new school building in Sheffield.

A visual game for relevant meaning, the design concept challenges curiosity and discovery, encouraging observation toward literate understanding.

The words are based on a letterform design by Durer, whose structural geometry was used to define the initial capitals. The 'educational' vocabulary used was derived from recent student statements and discussions that were conducted on video in an arrangement with the school.

The design is an emotional response with a contradictory softening element of free-flowing watercolour transitions, which forms the base to the more rhythmic structure of text that dances through the window.
