As its title suggests, this monumental typographic project focusses on the life of a very specific park – JJ Holland Park in Kensington, Melbourne – within one 24 hour period. Through intense observation, a series of 45 stories or ‘vignettes’ were written, along with an estimate as to how many times these incidents may occur in the park within just one day.
Located directly opposite the park, this meticulously designed artwork is mapped across hundreds of metres of tiles. It has an estimated lifespan of at least 40 years.
The complexity of the artwork required the development of four custom typefaces – Holland 4, Holland 13, Holland 44 and Holland 84 – all taking as their common unit of measure the tile dimensions.
