Latin Epigram Generator for the Idler Academy

2011

– Martha Freud Design, Electronic Switching, Customised Wooden Cabinet.

The Latin Epigram Generator, by Martha Freud Design, is a grid of 12 ceramic cups each inscribed with one latin word. The cups generate a cycle of 22 three word epigrams. The first epigram "Libertas per Cultum" is the motto of the Idler Academy.

We were delighted when, in early 2011, our friends (Tom Hodgkinson & Victoria Hull) opened the Idler Academy a few minutes away from our studio. We were all keen to do something to celebrate the event. The epigrams were chosen by Tom Hodgkinson, in collaboration with the now increasingly famous Mr Gwynne.
