Kevin Howbrook: Colour Coded is an exhibition of large-scale digital prints that show what familiar texts, like the ‘Bible’ or ‘The Empire Strikes Back’, look like if each word is represented by a colour.

Kevin Howbrook is an artist and web developer living and working in Colchester, Essex. His work transforms the concrete to the abstract, re-representing information so that it speaks of something more than its original meaning or purpose. He says: “My work explores human understanding and emotions by using technology to expose concepts that would otherwise be hidden to us.”
