National Libraries of Scotland – Beyond Macbeth

Beyond Macbeth
National Libraries of Scotland & The Union
Locations throughout Edinburgh

The fabrication and installation of 3 sculptural objects, depicting famous Macbeth quotes for the National Library of Scotland’s publicity campaign. The promotional project was commissioned by Edinburgh’s The Union marketing agency.

Five sets of the same word were CNC machined from birch plywood. They were then laminated together to create 3D word forms which were in turn stacked and secured upon each other. The quotes were then bolted to a heavy base for strength and stability.

The three structures were situated around popular areas of Edinburgh for the entire duration of the Beyond Macbeth exhibition.
