Typhoon is inspired by a report by the Comite des Sages of the European Commission, entitled The cost of digitising Europe's cultural heritage (2010). In it is the statistic that digitising all of the eligible (i.e. not in copyright) books in European libraries would cost the same as between 33 and 50 Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft. This statistic could be taken different ways, but it does seem to posit very strikingly the question of the relative value of culture and military might. Typhoon is made from whited out journal paper, with the form of a Eurofighter jet cut out of each of the 33 pages. The cover has a hand-painted copy of an illumination of a figure writing in a book, taken from an early printed book (Tyndale's New Testament of 1526). Made for the exhibition Library Thoughts at the Hungarian Multicultural Centre, Budapest, 2011.
