Catherine Griffiths

Catherine Griffiths is an artist, designer and typographer based in Auckland. Her work spans visual communication design, artist books, typography in public spaces, architecture and the landscape, and writing on design/memoir.

“Club de conversation” keyhole series is a collection of seven french phone numbers, derived from the hundreds of tiny papery objects that Griffiths collected over a ten year period around the streets of Paris. The public display of private information is super-enlarged and abstracted into the keyhole motif, a voyeuristic entry point into that person's world, the number never wholly revealed.
