Square Photographs of White Circle Paintings
Thirty-eight photographs of mini-roundabouts taken from the roadside.
From road level the circles are seen as ellipses. The images have been altered to make them as circular as possible.
The circles instruct motorists to observe a rule, intended to be seen rather than looked at. Although created 'uncreatively' by road painters, they can be read as outdoor public art. They present a surface patina which is the product both of the makers' techniques and the physical rigours that have been placed upon them over time.
The book features a short text on the rules and history of the mini-roundabout.
This work also exists in a moving image version - Forty-Three Square Circle Painting Photographs
