Campaign in Vain was a curatorial project that considered artists responses to the 2015 General Election, taking the form of a series of events across the city of Bath involving posters, video, installation and social media.
The logo developed from the idea of the boxes on a ballot paper, as well as the perceived frustrations amongst many sectors of society about the nature of British politics at the time. The idea that someone may have voted with a frustrated reluctance visualised in a scribble lent itself to the curatorial theme.
As the project took place across the city with a series of events, the map and handout were a vital part of the project in order to communicate the work to visitors.
A mobile polling booth was moved around the city during the festival, providing a distribution point. The logo was placed around the city on stickers accompanying fly-posted artwork, offering a clue as to their purpose.
