mwpm, tm

tm by mwpm is, as can be expected, a meditation on the letters t and m, however not necessarily a meditation of the transcendental kind. In mwpm’s own words:

these two letters have two distinctive connotations to me:

”mt” sounds like ”empty”
I have attempted to represent emptiness by rendering the letters as
bordered rather than filled.

”tm” stands for ”trademark”
I have attempted to represent the implications of trademark by means of proliferation and arrangement, as if by mechanical  reproduction.

combining these letters means exploring their aesthetic qualities and potentials, how they compliment and contrast.
combining these connotations means confronting the emptiness of capitalism and consumer culture.

tm was written in Waterloo, Ontario by mwpm, printed in Rostock, Germany by psw on her 1960s Gestetner mimeograph, folded, stapled and cut in Malmö, Sweden by Joakim Norling and is numbered can-swe 4-0. It was printed on uncoated Werkdruckpapier, 120 gsm and has 12 pages, sized 15 x 15 cm. 48 copies were made and Timglaset confront capitalism and consumer culture by asking just 3 EUR for it (+ something for the post office).
