Mark Leckey has an ongoing fascination with the affective power of images, music and technology, and often uses reconfigured archival footage in his work. ‘Three Letter Threnody’, is an alphabet of logos representing products, companies and organisations that date from the latter part of the 20th century and no longer exist.
