This exhibition converges Senior Lecturer, Cathy Gale’s recent PhD with election week. Her practice-based research concerns the value of ambiguity in graphic design and employs the multiplicities of X as a visual argument. X is used to mean yes, no and also maybe, simultaneously. This is an interesting paradox for graphic design: a discipline primarily concerned with the clear and unambiguous communication of a message. Should X only stand for positive ideas? Is X the best sign for protest? Should X be allowed to continue as an ambiguous sign? Join the debate. ​Even if you cannot vote in the election – you can vote for X.
